The Vintage 2019 : After a mild winter, spring settled down with important variations of temperatures and abundant rain which engendered millerandage (small berries). Summer was warm punctuated by several heat waves and a few thunderstorms épisodes which brought some water. The harvest started mid september under a bright sunshine. After a mild pressing, the wines are aged in oak casks for a period of 12 up to 14 months in our XVth century cellar. Moderate use of new oak.

Tasting : Bright gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with intense aromas of white and yellow orchard fruit on a hint of minerality. Complex and well-balanced. Dense and tight texture. Long and elegant finish.

About the wine:

A very small single vineyard shared between Chanson and the Hospices de Beaune on a hump of the hill of Corton. The vineyard used to belong to Charles Gravier, Count of Vergennes, born in Dijon, who was counselor to Louis XVI. The Count of Vergennes signed with Benjamin Franklin the Treaty of Alliance between France and the United States. With this Treaty France was the first country in the world to recognize the United States of America.

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. 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 bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks during 13 months.
