Domaine Chanson Gevrey-Chambertin La Perriere 1er Cru 2018 (92 WE)
“A complex if not especially elegant nose combines notes of plum, dark currant, violet and a hint of wood influence. The succulent, rich and appealingly energetic flavors possess fine volume while display good length on the mouth coating, rustic, mildly warm and somewhat grippy finish that stops just short of being overtly chewy.”
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.
