Domaine Chanson Beaune Clos des Fèves 1er Cru 2018 (90-92 BG) (90-92)
“A background touch of wood surrounds notably ripe and openly floral-suffused aromas of mainly dark berry liqueur-like scents. The delicious and intense middle weight flavors possess a slightly finer mouthfeel along with good energy on the saline-inflected finish. This is very Beaune, which is to say a generous yet serious wine that should age well over the medium-term.”
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.
