Domaine Chanson Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Les Caradeux 2018 (90 BG)
“More pleasant are the very rich, succulent, indeed even opulent, medium weight flavors that possess excellent intensity where the plush texture contrasts considerably with the austere, serious and slightly warm finish. This super-refreshing effort is not especially refined, in fact it flirts with rusticity but once it better harmonizes it should prove to be a quality effort.”
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.
