WINERY PROFILE | Domaine Chanson

“The soil is rocky, not deep, but with some clay and rocks and just 20 cm beneath is solid rock. Warm soil with good exposition S/E. So good sunny land. It seems compact on the rose to begin with, but there is also some seductive fruit on the aroma. Intense and pure on the attack. Lovely ripe, red fruit, bright with juicy bursting berries. There is a richness coupled with exuberance here. It has excellent vigour. The tannins are firm, but smooth. It is fresh and has power, but reined in with elegance. A very persistent finish. Fine to very fine. From 2016/17.”
