Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Limestone
Site : "Les Clos" is one of the most famous Grands Crus of Chablis. The area of production covers 24.75 ha. The vines selected by Chanson are ideally located right in the heart of the plot. The upper part of the plot brings the minerality and the lower part with alluvion deposits gives the rich character of this wine.
The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful white wines with fantastic acidity. Aged in French oak for 10 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Intense floral fragrances mixed with aromas of green almond, honey and vanilla enhanced by a very refined minerality. Generous, dense and complex. Well-structured. Beautiful aromatic combination. Well- integrated minerality. Outstanding persistence.
Food pairing : Foie gras, shellfish, fish, white meat as well as some goat cheeses.
