Chanson Père et Fils Nuits St. Georges 2007

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Founded in 1750, Chanson is one of the five grand "shippers" of Burgundy's Côte d'Or, an estate steeped in centuries-old tradition and rich in viticultural history. As a négociant (winemaker and merchant) and a domaine (vineyard estate), Chanson has represented the best of Burgundy for more than 250 years, growing its own grapes, partnering with other growers, bottling, selling, and shipping its own wines. Chanson's holdings comprise some of Burgundy's most coveted vineyards (over 90 acres, including 10 Premier Crus, one Grand Cru (Corton), and a rare monopole Premier Cru vineyard. Jean-Pierre Confuron of the Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot is now the winemaker, bringing hands-on, boutique approach to every vat. The grapes for this Nuits St. Georges are sourced from two vineyards right next to the celebrated Premier Cru Vaucrain. It shows ripe berry and forest tones with hints of smoke and truffle. Grab it now while it's ON SALE!!

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

Medium, medium-plus colour. Darker aromas, slowly cooking cherries. Good width and intensity, the velvet tannin slowly builds. The flavours linger very well, sticking to the inside of your mouth.
