Gevrey Chambertin Chanson, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, 2010
100% Pinot Noir aged in French Oak for 13 months.
A dark ruby colour with very refreshing aromas of small berries (bramble fruit) mixed with spices. Generous and punchy. Beautiful aromatic complexity. Tight texture. Structural tannins and well-integrated oak note with a persistent aftertaste.
Winemakers notes Soil: Mix of Clay and limestone. Site:Gevrey Chambertin is located in the "Côte de Nuits". The grapes stem from a selected plot in the northern part of Appellation "Gevrey Chambertin" located on a mid slope and bordering the Premiers Crus. The grapes are sourced from a partner winegrower. Picking of the grapes by our teams. The Vintage 2010. The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvellously combined with the minerality of the terroirs.
A wonderful match with game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
