Soil : Chalk, marl and limestone.
Site : The Premiers Crus vineyards of Domaine Chanson are aged in casks in the Bastion cellars. This cuvée is a blend of grapes sourced from selected plots among the Premiers Crus of the domaine located on the hill of Beaune.
The Vintage 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions. Aging in oak during 14 months
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with mango aromas. Delicate vanilla note. Well structured and lively. Beautiful texture. Lean, very precise. Well-integrated acidity. Delicate oak note and long and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Seafood, fish, white meat and some goat cheeses.
