Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : In the south of the Côte de Beaune, the terroirs of Puligny Montrachet produce some of the greatest white Burgundies, including the famous Grand Cu Montrachet. The grapes vinified by Chanson are sourced from excellent plots of vineyards on mid-slope.
The Vintage 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks during 14 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with zesty aromas and fresh honey on a hint of minerality. Crisp and compact. Good intensity. Precise and refined on a delicate oak note. A hint of minerality on the finish.
Food pairing : Seafood, fish, mild cheeses as well as certain goat cheeses.
