Domaine Chanson Meursault 2018 (91 WE)
“A hint of butteriness is all that peeks through on the shy nose of this wine. The palate has creamy richness that unites a touch of smoky flint with melted butter and ripe pear notes. A bright, concentrated core lends backbone and structure. The finish is appetizing and lasting.” – A.K.
Chanson's Meursault is a village wine with Premier Cru standards. The grapes are from 4 different plots of vineyards from selected growers. 2 of these plots are located on mid-slope for finesse and minerality. The other 2 are situated around the village for more richness and depth.
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.
