Chanson Père & Fils Beaune Premiere Cru les Grèves 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

With a history dating back to 1750, this fine Domaine was founded during the reign of Louis XV. When the Chanson family took full control in the 1800s, they already had substantial holdings in Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune and Pernand-Vergelesses, which they added to the business. Ownership of some of the top Premiers and Grands Crus vineyards in Burgundy remains a priority for the house. Their 45 hectare Domaine is managed by Gilles de Courcel and his experienced, dedicated team. Winemaker Jean-Pierre Confuron of the celebrated Vosne-Romanée dynasty continues to improve quality selection of fruit and the refurbished Bastion de l’Oratoire in Beaune is now home to a state of the art fermentation room as well as being the perfect environment for gentle maturation of their crus. Beaune Grèves of 2005 has benefitted from exceptional weather conditions: a dry and very hot summer after a superb growing season - long and cold winter followed by a rainy and humid spring, allowing full maturation of the grapes and good concentration. The resulting wine shows a dark ruby colour with intense aromas of cooked red fruit mixed with toffees and spicy nuances and a subtle vanilla note. This wonderful Pinot Noir is well-structured, ample, generous. It truly is beautiful aromatic combination with well-integrated oak and solid tannins and a good persistence. This versatile wine suits all cheeses, though french regional varieties particularly match perfectly, and red grilled meats or meat en sauce.

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

Immediately appealing for its black cherry and supple texture, yet this red has the structure to develop over time. Ripe tannins and bright acidity shore up the finish. Best from 2011 through 2020. 300 cases imported. -BS Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2005 Chanson, Domaine Pere et Fils Beaune Greves, Premier Cru 750ml
