Domaine Chanson Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc 1er Cru Domaine 2017 (91 WA)
“Stone and iodine aromas and flavors grace the lemon, hazelnut and spice notes of this dense, taut version. Verges on creamy, yet the bracing acidity keeps this firm. Fine length.”
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.
