Chanson/Ludovic Montlouis Sur Loire les Pechers 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

89 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2011 Montlouis 'les Pêchers' from Monsieur Chanson is labeled as 'Sec Tendre' (first time I have ever seen this term!) and which I assume is a step between Sec and Demi-Sec... This too, is a lovely wine, offering up scents of white peach, bee pollen, a delicate touch of citrus zest, a lovely base of chalkiness, white lilies and hints of the honeycomb to come with a bit more age. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and filigreed, with a lovely core, very good acids and fine focus and balance on the long, complex and classy finish. The touch more residual sweetness on the backend fills in nicely the slight dip on the backend that is evident in the les Cabotines bottling, without really making the wine anymore sweet! A lovely result. 2013-2020. (Sep/Oct 2013)

The House was founded in 1750 in the reign of Louis XV by Simon Verry. The Cellars are located in the Bastion de L’Oratoire, a look-out and defensive tower built at the end of the 15th century. In the XIX the Chanson Family took control and the company continued to expand under the leadership of Alexis Chanson. The Chanson family already owned a large Domaine located across Beaune, Savigny les Beaune and Pernand Vergelesses which was added to the company’s assets, thus giving it a new dimension. Chanson survived the Phylloxera crisis and continued to increase the size of their holdings. Visits by appiontment. Read less
