The Red Wine Bargain Of The Year

The bargain of the year is from Burgundy? It is from 2015? Yes, it is. It is not only a vintage with stratospheric prices for exceptional wines. This exceptional vintage has allowed some producers to focus on high quality grapes and still generate higher volume. Domaine Chanson is owned by Bollinger and this is what they do very well.

The 2015 Domaine Chanson Le Bourgogne Pinot Noir includes grapes from across Burgundy. The colour of the wine is bright red with alluring rose petals on the nose. Intense red cherry flavours hit the palate with great purity and charm. This is an elegant wine which delivers a great mouthfeel and drive to the back palate. The wine has a strong backbone of acidity and firm tannins kick in on the dry and savoury finish. This is a wine of beauty and great drinkability. And the price? A$30 per bottle. You can enjoy this wine now or cellar for 5 years.

Score: 94/+++
