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 2015 : After a cold winter and a mild spring, the weather conditions in summer (with important differences of temperature between day and night from August onwards) were ideal and enabled a perfect maturation of the grapes. The harvest started early September under a bright sunshine. Vinification : after a mild pressing, this wine was vinified and aged for 10 to 14 months in oak casks in our cellars of the XVth century. Moderate proportion of new oak.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit and pale fleshed fruit (peach) aromas on a hint of vanilla; Precise, well-structured and very pure. Long and mineral finish.
Food pairing : Seafood, fish, white meat and some goat cheeses.
