Domaine Chanson is one of the great historic producers in Burgundy. Founded in 1750, they are 1 of only 6 producers in the region still remaining from the 18th century and earlier. Most critical to today, Chanson was purchased in 1999 and has been dramatically restored to once again become one of Burgundy’s top estates, best signified in 2017 by 3 of their wines earning “wine of the year” plaudits from the most renowned wine critic in France.
Hints of brandied cherries and crushed graphite accent piercing blackberry and raspberry in this full-bodied and ripe yet stately wine. Sourced from one of Chanson's monopole vineyards, it's pure in black-fruit flavors yet doesn't shy away from savory complexities of minty green herbs and charred earth. Soft in tannins and freshly balanced, it should improve through 2035 and hold further.
Pair with game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
