Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Côte Chalonnaise, Côte d'Or and more specifically Côte de Beaune. The Bastion is a tower where Chanson wines are aged.
The Vintage 2013 : After a long winter and a gloomy spring, the summer was warm and sunny but with intervals of violent hail storms. The harvest took place in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The difficult weather conditions at the beginning of the year and the hail storms have considerably impacted the yields in most of the wine regions but quality is there. The white wines are tense with citrus fruit aromas and a well-shaped acidity.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Notes of lime blossom mixed with zesty citrus fruit. Subtle minerality. Well-structured. Well-shaped minerality. Taut and precise. Well-crafted acidity. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Pâté, fish, charcuterie, and many goat cheeses.
