Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Marly limestone - rough limestone with silt of clay
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 2002 : The harvest took place at the end of September, several days after the official beginning of the harvest in order to obtain the best possible maturation of the berries. Excellent weather conditions prevailed in August and September and hence the good quality of the grapes. A severe pruning had been carried out in July 2002 to limit yields. Aging in oak casks during 18 months.
Tasting : Ruby colour with purple tinges. Fresh aromas of raspberries, red plums on a violet note enhanced by a nice hint of vanilla. Charming, generous, breed, well balanced, ample with a subtle wooded. Good tannic structure and good persistence. Silver Medal at the Concours General Agricol in Paris in 2004.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with red or white meat, grilled or toasted, games or classic cheeses like goat.
