Domaine Chanson and Bourgogne Week 2020
Domaine Chanson is taking centre stage this month as we arrive at Bourgogne Week which runs from 7th to 16th January. For Domaine Chanson the 2018 En Primeur campaign kicked-off at the end of November 2019 in The Library Room of The Travellers Club with a tasting hosted by Chanson Managing Director, Vincent Avenel.
The 2018 wines show great concentration & power – the reds are deeply coloured and dense with complex aromas of fully ripe blackberries. On the palate they have a voluptuous and velvety texture with great tannic structure. The white wines are well-balanced with notes of exotic and white-flesh fruit. They have fantastic tension and freshness, thanks to the moderate use of new oak at Chanson.
Vincent concluded that “the 2018 vintage has produced concentrated, rich and opulent wines, with great aromatics and texture on the palate, reminiscent of the 2009 vintage.”
