Domaine Chanson Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc 1er Cru 2018 (90 VM)
“The 2018 Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc 1er Cru offers jasmine and honeysuckle on the nose, one of the best-defined of Chanson’s whites and displaying good intensity. The palate is crisp on the entry with fine weight, light orange peel and citrus notes and a dab of spice on the finish.”
Chanson is a true mid-size Domaine. Unlike many of their competitors, their wines are produced using the grower model rather than the négociant model. They have extensive holdings of over 111 acres of exclusively Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the heart of Burgundy. Chanson is obsessed with maintaining a consistent quality level across the entire range. The wines have a seductive and distinctive style due to the rigorous approach to viticulture and vinification.
