Rebsorte : Chardonnay
Boden : Marl,chalk and limestone
Lage : White wines are very unusual in Savigny-les-Beaune, the vineyards producing essentially red wines. The particular nature of the soil "Hauts Marconnets" with Marl, chalk and limestone encouraged Chanson to plant Chardonnay. The vineyard of 2,18 hectares is ideally situated high up on the hill of Savigny-les-Beaune, facing south-east, close to the hills of Beaune 1er Crus.
Der Jahrgang 2005 : Harvest took place in the early days of September after a dry and very hot summer after a superb growing season - long and cold winter followed by a rainy and humid spring. Exceptional weather conditions for an exceptional vintage. Full maturation of the grapes and good concentration. Aging in cask during 13 months
Verkostung : Bright gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of citrus fruit, almond and honey. Beautiful vanilla note. Elegant, well-structured and generous. Beautiful aromatic combination enhanced by a well-integrated minerality and a delicate oak note. Long aftertaste.
Servierempfehlung : Shellfish, fish and cheese (goat).
