External Reviews for Chanson Père et Fils Puligny-Montrachet
Chanson is a Burgundy estate whose history dates back to 1750. With extensive holdings in some of the regions most prized vineyards they've produced great reds and white for literally centuries. In 1999 Bollinger Champagne took over what was then a house with its glory starting to fade. Gilles Courcel of Domaine Courcel is now in charge and Jean-Jacques Confuron is the winemaker. The estate has been transformed into what is today one of the top quality producers in Burgundy. So here is a very basic but very finely crafted 2009 Bourgogne red. Grapes are sourced from their own vineyards in the Cote de Nuit and from select growers in the Cote de Beaune. The stellar '09 vintage shines through as the ripe cherry, berry flavors emerge on a framework of racy tannins with spice, wood smoke and forest floor adding to the complexity. A remarkable wine for the price.
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.

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.
Pale ruby with a pink rim. Fresh and alive on the nose this is at the same time very Volnay and very Chanson. Features aromas of rhubarb black cherry damp earth iron bubblegum and a touch of dried herbs. Alive on the palate with great acidity and cooling red fruit flavors. Still very taut this is admirable fine tannin structure that should soften with another year or two in the bottle. Finishes clean and long. Drink 2012-2015. Cory Gowan.
