Beaune 1er Cru Clos Des Mouches, Rouge, Domaine Chanson, Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, France, 2017   

Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Soil: Marl with sandy yellow limestone

Site: Chanson is one of the major owners of Clos des Mouches with a vineyard of 4.5 hectares. Ideal location on the hill at the southern end of the vineyards of Beaune on a spur pointing toward Pommard. A plot of 2.5 hectares is planted with Pinot Noir on a limestone subsoil covered with clay.

The Vintage 2017: After a classic winter, spring settled down with warm temperatures but a cool weather in April slackened down the evolution of the vines. May was rainy and was followed by a warm summer with heat waves. However, a few thunderstorms épisodes brought enough rain to allow the maturation of the grapes to continue. 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 colour. Floral fragrances (lila) mixed with complex aromas of red berries and spices. Energetic with a dense and refined texture. Silky tannins and lingering finish.

"Intense and ripe, verging on overripe on the nose – you don’t often find that in Burgundy! Just a little soft on the palate. Unlikely to make very old bones, I feel." 16.5/20 points, Jancis Robinson,, January 2019

Food pairing: Can be enjoyed with red meat, grilled or "en sauce" and our local cheeses like Epoisses, Citeaux and Langres.
