Domaine Chanson Meursault 2015 (90 JS)
“Smokey yeasty nose from aging on the lees, but it also has plenty of candied citrus and a dried pear character. Quite a full body but it shows nice acidity for this very ripe vintage, giving this wine a satisfying harmony. Good length, too. Drink now or hold.”
Chanson's Meursault is a village wine with Premier Cru standards. The grapes are from 4 different plots of vineyards from selected growers. 2 of these plots are located on mid-slope for finesse and minerality. The other 2 are situated around the village for more richness and depth.
Chanson is a true mid-size Domaine. Unlike many of their competitors, their wines are produced using the grower model rather than the négociant model. They have extensive holdings of over 111 acres of exclusively Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the heart of Burgundy. Chanson is obsessed with maintaining a consistent quality level across the entire range. The wines have a seductive and distinctive style due to the rigorous approach to viticulture and vinification.
