Domaine Chanson Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes 2018 (93 WE)
“A vivid streak of ripe lemon on the nose of this wine promises freshness. The mellow, creamy body with its smooth concentration still harbors a little flinty reduction, but also has that gentle aromatic lemon streak, lending shape to the smooth and textured palate. This is elegant and vivid.”
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.
