2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Chassagne-MontrachetJul. 2010
Medium-pale colour. More understated aromatic width than the Meursault. There is some Chassagne power but it remains quite a linear wine. Enough concentration? I’m not sure, perhaps it’s just the linear presentation but I’m missing a little intensity – so complaints about the finish though – above average for a villages.
2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Chassagne-Montrachet Les ChevenottesJul. 2010
From vines acquired in 2007. Medium yellow colour. Ripe, concentrated aromas but the freshness means nothing ponderous about it. Intense, good texture, very good acidity and the flavour expands in the mid-palate. A long if understated finish.
2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Pernand Vergelesses Les VergelessesJul. 2010
Medium, medium-plus colour. Warm, comfortable dark red fruit. There is freshness and a nice minerality to the structure – there is some power here.
2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les DominodeJul. 2010
Medium colour. Less width but much more depth of fruit. This is a little sweeter and friendlier but has a structure not to be under-estimated. There’s a long, mineral finish.
2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Beaune Clos des FèvesJul. 2010
Medium, medium-plus colour. There is a nice precision to the fruit here – very nice aromas. In the mouth I find this less generous than many from 2007 but there is a lovely high-toned red fruit flavour.
2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Nuits St.GeorgesJul. 2010
Medium, medium-plus colour. Darker aromas, slowly cooking cherries. It’s a different kind of attack. Good width and intensity, the velvet tannin slowly builds. The flavours linger very well, sticking to the inside of your mouth.
2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Gevrey-ChambertinJul. 2010
Medium, medium-plus colour. Dark fruit and a more spicy, hebal width. Ripe fruit and plenty of structure – freshness too. Frankly, this will need a year or so in bottle, but the underlying fruit is very good.
2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Pernand-VergelessesJul. 2010
Blanc. Pale lemon colour. Fine, tight and pretty aromas. A faint hint of transient oak, a little fat and plenty of silk – very mineral with a subtle length, delivered on good acidity. This is very good.
2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Beaune Clos des MouchesJul. 2010
Pale lemon yellow. Riper and denser fruit aromas. A hint less silk, but it is replaced by a concentration of more fruit-driven flavours. Still shows a fine balance and good minerality. This finishes long…
