WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING
Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of exotic fruit and pale fleshed fruit on a hint of minerality Well balanced with a well-crafted minerality. Refreshing aftertaste.
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 took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop aromas of exotic fruit mixed with floral fragrances.
One of the great historic producers of Burgundy, founded in 1750 and purchased by the Champagne Bollinger family in 1999, Chanson today is one of only six producers in Burgundy still remaining from the 18th century and earlier. Chanson has been meticulously managed since 1999 to become one of Burgundy’s top estates. Domaine Chanson’s extensive holdings, and the extraordinary rigor and precision of their approach in the vineyards and cellars, result in wines of individuality and quality. Chanson owns 111 acres in Burgundy, 62 of which are in Beaune, including their monopole Clos des Fèves, and important holdings of Clos des Mouches and Corton Vergennes. They farm organically, harvest all grapes and vinify all wines, both for their estate holdings and contracted vineyards.
