COMMENTARY: The 2020 Chanson Pere & Fils Pernand-Vergelesses Premier Cru Les Vergelesses delivers superior staying power on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas of berries, boysenberries, dried earth, and dried mushrooms. Try it with grilled lamb chops. (Tasted: February 16, 2022, San Francisco, CA)
D 93
Decanter
A bit reticent at first, but opens with a bit of time to show a dark plummy fruit with an earthy edge. The wine is tannic and slightly rustic in nature, but with a bit of time to round out in bottle it should show well. Chanson has more than 5ha here planted to Pinot, and another 2ha to Chardonnay. The soils are fairly heavy clay, but the southeast-facing slopes ripen fruit well - some lots came in above 14.5%. The grapes are partially destemmed and gently fermented.
BH 92
Burghound.com
A mentholated top note can be found on the ripe aromas of poached plum, dark currant and soft sauvage hints. The sleek and attractively textured medium-bodied flavors possess fine mid-palate density while displaying fine length on the youthfully austere and moderately firm finish. This too should reward close to a decade of bottle aging.
Barrel Sample: 89-92

James Suckling

In the nose, this is unlike any other red Burgundy I can remember, due to the olive-tapenade aroma that accompanies the deep blackberry fruit. Some smoke and a hint of fire-embers, too. A dense and quite robust wine for this appellation and it will need some time to integrate the firm structure. But impressive concentration. Almost monumental at the finish.

Founded in 1750, Chanson is one of the five grand "shippers" of Burgundy's Côte d'Or- an estate steeped in centuries-old tradition and rich in viticultural history. As a négociant (winemaker and merchant) and a domaine (vineyard estate), Chanson has represented the best of Burgundy for more than 250 years, growing its own grapes, partnering with other growers, bottling, selling, and shipping its own wines.

Chanson's holdings comprise some of Burgundy's most coveted vineyards. Located in the heart of the Côte de Beaune (the historical center of Burgundy) and surrounded by some of the greatest vineyards in the world, Chanson can count French philosophe Voltaire, romantic poet Lamartine, and the Bonaparte family among its clients.

Its celebrated bastion, a 15th-century fortress first rented and then acquired in 1794 to cellar the wines, is an internationally celebrated icon of Burgundy (the largest of six bastions that form part of the wall surrounding the city of Beaune).

To visit Chanson is to travel back in time and experience the magic of the 1000-year-old tradition of winemaking. Chanson still vinifies and cellars its wines in the bastion as it has for over 200 years. The 10-meter thick walls of this ancient fortress make it ideal for winemaking.

Occupying the most northerly combe (the French term for a valley that cuts through a hillside) of the Côte de Beaune, Pernand-Vergelles sits to the west of and behind the hill of Corton. The most sought after whites of the village come from the slope of Pernand on the side of Corton where Pernand-Vergelles shares the Grand Cru Corton-Charlemagne with Aloxe-Corton. The best red producing Cru is Les Vergelles, which overlaps into Savigny-les-Beaune. Reds here are fleshy, seductive and structured while whites are both lively and age worthy.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
