2012 Domaine Chanson 1er Cru Savigny-Dominode

2012 Domaine Chanson 1er Cru Savigny-Dominode

Burghound 92pts: "Here the wood treatment is more subtle if not invisible as the black currant, spice and earth scents are clear and easy to appreciate. There is a discreet minerality present on the rich and voluminous flavors that possess both fine depth and excellent length where the mineral component adds lift. Note that this is old school in style and patience will be required. Barrel Sample: 90-92"


The Wine Advocate 91pts: "For unknown reasons, the 2012 Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Dominode did not show as it ought to chez Chanson, therefore a replacement bottle was sent chez moi. Lucid purple in color, it has a precocious nose for a 2012 with iodine-stained cassis and blueberry fruit that deserve one or two years to settle. The palate is fruit-driven and for some reason, reminiscent of a Marsannay in style with sweet, ripe cassis fruit, plenty of glycerin and a primal, perhaps slightly obvious finish that will need to demonstrate its premier cru credentials with age. It is a hedonistic delight, but it needs to show a little more class. Drink 2016-2024."

Winemaker's Notes: "Bright ruby color. Intense aromas of black current, spice and earth scents. Delicate vanilla note. Rich, voluminous with a beautiful structure. Deep with a tight texture. Hint of minerality. Long and spicy aftertaste."
