Domaine Chanson Savigny-Les-Beaune 1er Cru Hauts Marconnets 2018 (92 WE)
“[…] swirling reveals melted butter. The palate is fresh with Mirabelle fruit and more of that buttery aroma, bedded on a gentle midpalate texture. It offers both concentration and balance.”
White wines are very unusual in Savigny-Les-Beaune. The vineyards mainly produce red wines. However, Chanson decided to plant Chardonnay here too because of the particular nature of the soil. The wine shows aromas of exotic fruit mixed with floral fragrances.
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.
