Domaine Chanson Marsannay Rouge 2019
This village is located in the northern part of the Côte de Nuits in a short distance of Dijon, the regional capital.
The Vintage 2019 : After a mild winter, spring settled down with important variations of temperatures and abundant rain which engendered millerandage (small berries). Summer was warm punctuated by several heat waves and a few thunderstorms épisodes which brought some water. The harvest started mid september under a bright sunshine. After a whole cluster fermentation in vat, the wines are aged in oak casks for a period of 15 up to 18 months in our XVth century cellar. Moderate use of new oak.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Delice floral fragrances mixed with intense aromas of black berries and plum on a hint of spices. Complex with a deep and dense texture. Long aftertaste. CHANSON"This Marsannay Village rouge is outstanding quality and value for money. Drink now with a decant or cellar up to 8 years to allow the secondary characters to shine." TC

Domaine Chanson is one of the great historic producers in Burgundy. Founded in 1750, they are one of only six producers in the region still remaining from the 18th century and earlier. Most critical to today, Chanson was purchased by Family Champagne Group Societé Jacques Bollinger in 1999 and has been dramatically restored to once again become one of Burgundy’s top estates.
Chanson has extensive holdings of over 111 acres of exclusively Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the heart of Burgundy. This includes 62 acres of Premier Cru vineyards in the Côte de Beaune, making them one of the leading Premier Cru specialists in the appellation. They produce approximately 17,000 cases of domaine wine per year from their vineyards by farming organically, and harvesting all grapes and vinifying all wines, even for contracted vineyards.
The Chanson estate produces over half of its own fruit requirements and all the Estate owned vineyards are farmed organically. The other grapes are sourced from growers selected according to their commitment to quality in alignment with Chanson’s quality Charter. Individual plot selection produces fruit which also remains separate through the fermentation and ageing processes. The soil is ploughed to encourage the vines to extend their roots more deeply and therefore better express the typicity of the Terroir. All the grapes are hand-picked at optimum maturity.
