Domaine Chanson Gevrey-Chambertin 2016 (93 WS)
“Defined by vivid acidity, this red is racy, corralling the cherry, currant, tobacco, earthy and mineral flavors into a linear frame. Shows an underlying smokiness, along with fine length.”
Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the major communes in the Cote de Nuits and is located in the northern part of the appellation. This is a "coup de coeur" wine, meaning it touches your heart with its charming style and powerful aromas and flavors.
Chanson is a true mid-size Domaine. Unlike many of their competitors, their wines are produced using the grower model rather than the négociant model. They have extensive holdings of over 111 acres of exclusively Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the heart of Burgundy. Chanson is obsessed with maintaining a consistent quality level across the entire range. The wines have a seductive and distinctive style due to the rigorous approach to viticulture and vinification.
