Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chenevottes
1er Cru 2022

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Clay and limestone on the famous stone of Chassagne.

Site : Our 2 hectares of Premiers Cru vineyard "Les Chenevottes" is located next door to the famous Terroir "Le Montrachet". The soil is mostly constituted of clay and limestone with the famous stone of Chassagne and is clearly mineral. The vineyards have a peculiar aspect. They are constituted of small blocs entangled into each other. With its East exposure, on the road to Saint Aubin, this plot benefits from the fresh air which conveys to the wine very pure and refreshing aromas.

The Vintage 2022 : After a winter characterized by marked variations in temperature between January and February, spring started with mild temperatures. A sequence of cold weather in April was followed by warm temperatures in May but the lack of water was very noticeable and could not be compensated by the rainy storms of June. Summer was marked by several and long heat waves and the storms of the end of August were most welcome. The harvest at Chanson started on August 30 with a team of 100 persons and ended on September 13. 2022 vintage was quite generous both in volume and quality and the white wines are well-balanced, precise and refreshing.

Tasting : Bright gold color. Floral fragrances (acacia) mixed with intense aromas of exotic fruit, apricot on a hint of spices. Well-balanced and complex. Dense and fine texture. Well-crafted oak note. Refined and generous finish with a hint of minerality. Score : 93/100 Jasper Morris/Inside Burgundy - 16,5/20 Jancis Robinson

Food pairing : To be enjoyed with "foie gras", seafood, white meat and all sorts of cheeses and especially our local cheeses (Citeaux, Epoisses).
