Domaine Chanson Chablis 2018 (90 WE)
“Full Review to be Published in November, 2020”
The village of Chablis, located in the northernmost district of Burgundy, is known for producing steely, crisp wines with intense green-appley acidity and a firm, mineral backbone. Chanson's Chablis shows characteristics you'd expect from Premier and Grand Cru wines from the appellation and has the same phenolic maturity. The fruit comes from selected hillside plots just south of the village giving greater concentration and ripeness.
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.
