Domaine Chanson Chambertin Clos de Beze 2011
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
Soil: Clay and limestone
Site: One of the most prestigious Appellation of Gevrey Chambertin. Located on the upper part of the hill, in the very heart of the Grands Crus area of Grands Crus, with an exceptional eastward orientation. The plot covers 15 ha of stony soil.
After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a very fresh structure.
Dark ruby color. Intense aromas of black berries mixed with liquorice. Delicate vanilla note. Powerful and well-structured. Dense with a great depth of fruit. Tight texture. Well-integrated tannins. Long and powerful aftertaste.
It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
