Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Chanson owns a vineyard of 5.4 hectares in premier Cru "Les Vergelesses". One of the plots of this vineyard has been selected to produce this Pernand-Vergelesses village.
The Vintage 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a very fresh structure. Aging in oak casks during 18 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby. Floral Fragrances mixed with cassis and notes of menthol. Well-crafted and concentrated. Rich, suave. Firm texture. Solid and straightforward tannins. Generous finish slightly rustic.
Food pairing : Enjoy with grilled steak and a wide selection of French cheeses, in particular Brie.
