Beaune 1er Cru Clos Des Fèves, Monopole, Domaine Chanson, Cote de Beaune, Burgundy 2016
100% Pinot Noir aged in oak for 14 to 18 months
A Chanson "monopole" in the very heart of the first Growths vineyards of Beaune. The vineyard covering 3.80 ha is located on a mid slope. The "Clos des Fèves" was already known in the 14th century under the latin word "Fae"
"More withheld than their Clos des Mouches tasted immediately beforehand. Loads of weight and intensity on the palate with rich fruit and a long, spicy finish. Has the proportions of a Gevrey – tight, punchy, long-lived." (RH) Richard Hemming MW 17.5/20 jancisrobinson.com
