Chanson Pere & Fils Tasting: – John Hanna & Sons dropped by with Ms. Sophie Baldo, export manager for Chanson Pere & Fils, to present a selection of wines from this famous old négociant.
This tutored tasting was a wonderful opportunity to check out a full range of 2007s from Chanson, including:
2007 Vire Clesse
2007 Chablis Grand Cru “Les Clos”
2007 Pernand Vergelesses, Les Caradeux, 1er Cru
2007 Chassagne Montrachet, Les Chenevottes, 1er Cru
2007 Puligny Montrachet, Les Folatieres, 1er Cru
2007 Corton Vergennes, Grand Cru
2007 Bourgogne, Pinot Noir
2007 Santenay, Beauregard, 1er Cru
2007 Beaune, Clos des Mouches, 1er Cru
2007 Beaune, Clos des Feves, 1er Cru
2007 Nuit St Georges, Les Porets, 1er Cru
2007 Chambertin, Clos des Beze, Grand Cru
The name Chanson carries 250 years of history, reinforced by its location in the heart of the old town of Beaune and the imposing 16th century “Bastion” (the ancient tower, part of the old ramparts) where the wines mature in casks. Chanson’s winemaker, Jean-Pierre Confuron, is part of a new generation of young superstar winemakers emerging in Burgundy. Confuron aims to express the purity of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes grown in the varied terroirs of Burgundy.
Great to see Chanson return to FWR this year. Definitely a great way to spend a hump-day lunch hour.
