Domaine Chanson Beaune Clos des Fèves 1er Cru Domaine 2017(93 JD)
“Revealing a translucent ruby color as well as a terrific perfume of ripe cherries, sappy herbs, spring flowers, and Asian spices, it starts out supple and sweetly fruited, yet shows more and more acidity, cut, and focus with time in the glass. Beautifully balanced, with both acidity and tannins, it’s approachable today.”
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.
