Domaine Chanson Marsannay 2012
Bright ruby color. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with refreshing and intense aromas of raspberry and a hint of spice. Generous and complex. Delicate oak note. Beautiful fruit combination. Beautiful texture. Long and refreshing aftertaste. Enjoy with red or white meat, game, or cheeses (especially French cheeses like epoisses or citeaux).
100% Pinot Noir. Marsannay is a village located in the northen part of the Cote de Nuits, a short distance from Dijon, the regional capital. 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. Aging in oak during 11 months.
