Domaine Chanson Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres 2018 (93 WE)
“The nose on this wine is shy but reveals creamy vanilla, subtle lemon and ripe Mirabelle surrounded by gentle hazelnut. Smooth and fluid, the palate seemingly floats on a cloud of creaminess. It offers creamy harmony and a bright core of ripe lemon.”
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.
