Bastion Beaune Chardonnay
1er Cru
2018

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Chalk, marl and limestone.

Site : The Premiers Crus vineyards of Domaine Chanson are aged in casks in the Bastion cellars. This cuvée is a blend of grapes sourced from selected plots among the Premiers Crus of the domaine located on the hill of Beaune.

The Vintage 2018 : After a rainy winter, spring started with a very warm episode in April followed by very cold températures in May. The warm weather settled down early June. The summer was punctuated by several heat waves which engendered a lack of water, compensated by the presence of clay in many plots. The harvest started end of August, in outstanding conditions with grapes fully ripe and healthy. The white wines are precise with a beautiful fruit combination. Vinification : after a mild pressing, this wine was vinified and aged for 12 to 14 months in oak casks in our cellars of the XVth century. Moderate proportion of new oak.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit and exotic fruit on a hint of minerality. Well-balanced and complex. Tight texture. Long finish with salty tinges.

Food pairing : Seafood, fish, white meat and some goat cheeses.
