Domaine Chanson Savigny-Dominode 1er Cru 2017 (90 WA)
“The 2017 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru La Dominode opens in the glass with a generous bouquet of wild berries, spices, grilled meat, dark chocolate and peonies. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, with a deep core of fruit, powdery structuring tannins and a sapid finish. As usual it’s one of the estate’s more structured offerings, but there’s plenty of promise for the future here.”
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.
