Domaine Chanson Beaune Bressandes Premier Cru 2018, Burgundy, France

This vineyard was owned in the 13th century by the Canon of Beaune, Jean Bressand. Pinot Noir is planted on a mix of limestone and clay, also sandy, on a bedrock. Slow ripeness thanks to the wind from the little valley situated at the top. The harvest started early september with an excellent sanitary level of the grapes. Vinification: whole bunch fermentation for approximately two weeks, the wines are then aged in our XVth century cellar for a period between 14 and 18 months. Moderate use of new oak. Tasting: Dark ruby color. Intense aromas of ripe dark berries, black plum and black currant mixed with spices on a hint of vanilla. Well-balanced and complex. Concentrated and deep with a velvety texture. Well-crafted oak note and well-integrated tannins. Long and elegant aftertaste.
