Wine Advocate-Parker : Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Marconnets has an elegant bouquet that leans squarely upon red fruit: strawberry and raspberry preserves, a pleasant touch of orange rind surfacing with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a supple, fresh and crisp entry. I adore the fruit profile here: vibrant strawberry and cranberry notes, a slight bitterness toward the finish that keeps this Beaune on its toes. It might lack length, but this is a very decent Beaune premier cru from Chanson. Tasted September 2017.
