Domaine Chanson, Meursault 1er Cru "Les Charmes"

136.00

One of the great historic producers of Burgundy, founded in 1750 Chanson today is one of only six producers in Burgundy still remaining from the 18th century and earlier. The extensive holdings, and the extraordinary rigor and precision of their approach in the vineyards and cellars, result in wines of individuality and quality from the 111 acres they own in Burgundy. They farm organically, and harvest all grapes and vinify all wines, both for their estate holdings and contracted vineyards. They vinify 100% whole cluster at their state of the art facility on the outskirts of Beaune. Aging takes place in the Bastion they own, one of the 5 massive towers from the 15th century fortifications that encircle the heart of medieval Beaune. Les Charmes is one of Meursault's largest and best-known Premier Cru vineyards. Found at the southern end of the village, at the border of Puligny Montrachet, it is one of a cluster of top climats. Located on a mid slope below Perrieres, the slope has excellent exposure and clay and limestone soils. This wine is made entirely from Chardonnay, and is vibrant and rich, with a nutty character and honeyed overtones. This wine is just now reaching its peak maturity, showing floral fragrances mixed with aromas of white pear and hazelnut. A hint of vanilla and delicate oak notes finish this well-crafted wine with a fine richness.
