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 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 months in oak casks (demi-muids for Chablis wines) in our cellars of the XVth century. Moderate proportion of new oak.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of citrus fruit on a hint of vanilla. Beautiful mineral expression. Powerful and complex on a dense structure. Well-shaped minerality. Delicate oak notes. Long and generous finish.
Food pairing : Foie gras, shellfish, fish, white meat as well as some goat cheeses.
