2011 Beaune 1er Cru, Pinot Noir, Burgundy
The Monopole of Domaine Chanson is located in the heart of the Beaune 1er Cru. The vineyard Clos des Feves stretches on 3.8 hectares. This 2011 is 100% Pinot Noir.
This ruby coloured Burgundy wine gives off delicate floral aromas on red berry hints, followed by a light mineral accent. The complex and deep 2011 Beaune 1er Cru Le Clos des Feves offers a chiselled and precise texture, which is also very harmonious. Pure fruit aromas are felt. The finish is fine and elegant.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Beaune Clos des Feves from Chanson has a ripe red cherry and bergamot-scented nose, slightly tinny at first, although that dissipates with time as it becomes more candied and pastille-like. The palate is structured, a little aloof on the entry. The acidity is nicely judged and there is good extraction on the finish that obviously needs another couple of years to mellow and coalesce. This is an discretely impressive showing.
