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 2010 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by cold and rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The white wines are tense with a tight texture underlined by a mineral overlay and an outstanding acidity. Aging in oak during 9 months (Demi-muids)
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Very subtle floral fragrances (honeysuckle) mixed with citrus fruit aromas and honey. Subtle vanilla note and expressive minerality. Generous and well-structured. Very pure fruit combination. Refined and complex. Well-shaped minerality. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : Foie gras, shellfish, fish, white meat as well as some goat cheeses.
