Pernand-Vergelesses Les Caradeux
1er Cru

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Marly limestone with silt of clay

Site : This vineyard of 1.90 hectare is ideally located on mid-slope close to the hill of Corton-Charlemagne. Same soil structure and height as its famous neighbour. The only difference is the East exposure of the "Caradeux" which makes of this plot an exceptional "terroir" providing unique mineral characteristics.

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 : Pale gold color. Refreshing aromas of citrus fruit and pale fleshed fruit mixed with appealing toasty bread notes. Well-shaped minerality. Well-balanced and well-structured. Dense and precise texture. Long and refreshing finish with salty tinges.

Food pairing : To be enjoyed with seafood, fish, poultry and mild cheeses especially our regional cheeses (Epoisses, Citeaux, Brillat-Savarin).
