Domaine Chanson Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes 2018 (92 BG)
“A more complex nose is composed by notes of petrol, resin, apple, citrus and a subtle hint of wood. The sleek but solidly concentrated middle weight plus flavors brim with sappy dry extract that coats the palate on the energetic, persistent and dry finish that displays fine depth. This very dry yet seductive effort isn’t particularly refined but it’s certainly impressive plus it’s sufficiently tightly wound that it should reward up to a decade of cellaring.”
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.
