Grape Variety : Chardonnay
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 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in Spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding. It became fine again early September with a true Indian Summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks during 11 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed white pear and apple aromas. Delicate vanilla note. Well structured with a good richness and a good volume. Sappy texture. Long and elegant aftertaste.
Food pairing : Seafood, fish, white meat and some goat cheeses.
