Beaune Gréves
'Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus'
1er Cru
Domaine Bouchard

AM -
Prominent wood pushes the otherwise markedly ripe array of sombre and earthy dark berry fruit liqueur-like aromas to the background.. There is good energy to the detailed yet impressively rich flavours that are shaped by firm tannins on the long, deep and complex if slightly dry finish that flashes a hint of bitter cherry. This isn't imbalanced per se at present but it will clearly require time to better harmonize.

Beaune Gréves
'Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus'
1er Cru
Domaine Bouchard

AM -
There is a trace of reduction present but not enough to materially detract from the violet, plum and liqueur-like dark currant aromas that are trimmed in a discreet application of wood. There is a beguiling sense of underlying tension to the broad-shouldered, rich, intense and like the Clos de la Mousse, relatively powerful flavours that exude a fine minerality on the serious, balanced and saline-inflected finish. This should be excellent in time though note that patience will be required.

Beaune Gréves
'Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus'
1er Cru
Domaine Bouchard

AM -
Noticeable though not overt wood influence sets off a very ripe nose composed of liqueur of plum, cassis and wild raspberry aromas. There is excellent richness to the round and relatively powerful medium weight flavours blessed with an abundance of dry extract that buffers the otherwise very firm, long and serious finish. This is also notably austere and extremely compact at present and as such it seems reasonably clear that it will not be a good candidate for early drinking.

    DOMAINE CHANSON
Since 1999 Domaine Chanson has been owned by the BOLLINGER Champagne  Group.
The domaine is managed by Gilles de Courcel; whose prime focus has been quality at affordable prices.

Jean-Pierre Confuron, Chanson’s Wine Maker, has been awarded the title of
Wine Grower of the Year 2014 by the famous Magazine “La Revue du Vin de France”.

    This Domaine has really improved since 2005 due to large-scale investment. 
As yet, the market has not woken-up to this fact, so you pay for the wine NOT the label.

Great value - please try them! 

24 75cl Beaune
'Clos des Mouches'
1er Cru
Chanson

AM -
This is also overtly floral with soft spice elements adding breadth to the pretty and fresh mix of red berry fruit scents. There is a refined mouth feel to the well-detailed and lively middle weight flavours that possess very good mid-palate concentration before culminating in a solidly powerful but balanced finish that is clean and refreshing. This will certainly need a few years of bottle age but should drink well after only 5 or 6 years if desired.

30 75cl Beaune
'Clos des Mouches'
1er Cru
Chanson

AM -
Mild reduction hides the nuance of the fruit but not the fact that it's quite ripe. This ripeness extends to the rich, refined and mineral-driven middle weight flavours that possess a relatively delicate mouth feel and excellent length.
This is a wine of finesse, which is rare in 2009.
2009 £35.00 AM92
2013-25
14 75cl Nuits St Georges
'Les Chaines Careteaux'
1er Cru
Chanson

NO Review for this wine at present, but this is what RP had to say for the NSG Village wine; so this wine will be a lot better!!

RP - The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges comes from 3.5 hectares of vine in the southern sector of under Les Pruliers and Les Vaucrains. There is a sense of purity, playfulness and joie-de-vivre on the nose that is very engaging, while the palate is rounded and generous with structured red and black, quite masculine fruit. This is a very decent village cru from Chanson.

2012 £35.00

2017-28

 

20 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Chanson

AM -
I like the complexity of the menthol and floral suffused nose that also displays fresh and ripe red and dark currant aromas. There is good vibrancy and intensity to the mineral-inflected medium weight flavours that contrast a supple mid-palate against a firm and mildly austere finish and overall, this is very Gevrey in basic character.
2012 £32.00 AM89
2018-28
8 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Chanson

AM -
Here the agreeably fresh nose offers a notable step up in aromatic complexity with pretty aromas of red, blue and black pinot fruit along with the expected notes of earth and underbrush. There is plenty of tannin-buffering dry extract that imparts a succulent character to the lightly mineral-inflected flavours that display excellent persistence.
A quality villages.
2010 £35.00 AM90
2015-24
4 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Chanson

AM -
An elegant array blends both upper and lower register aromas of airy red and dark berry fruit with distinct earth, humus and underbrush scents. There is a relatively refined mouth feel to the suave and seductively textured middle weight plus flavours that are opulent and concentrated before terminating in a well-balanced and serious finish that displays outstanding depth and length. This firmly structured effort will need plenty of cellar time to arrive at its majority.
2012 £120.00 AM94
2020-35
5 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Chanson

AM -
A very floral nose also displays notes of earth, animale, red berries and a vegetal character that adds depth. The rich, fresh and solidly well-concentrated big-bodied flavours exude subtle spice notes on the complex and seriously long finish where the stems are in clear evidence.
This is really very good but the presence of the stems is obvious and thus this will not be for everyone.

Mongeard-Mugneret

AM -
Whi
le there is ample wood and menthol influence here as well, the more floral-inflected nose possesses slightly fresher fruit. There is both more volume and a bit more energy as well to the firm but sleek middle weight flavours that also display a touch of youthful austerity on the longer and more complex finale.
