The Vintage 2021 : After a winter characterized by marked variations in temperature and a summer like weather spring, a sudden and intense frost fell upon Burgundy early April and severely hit the buds that had formed on the vine. The months that followed were a succesion of rainy and warm episodes. During summer there were warm and humid periods. The harvest started at Chanson on September 15, under a bright sunshine. The white wines display floral fragrances mixed with pale fleshed fruit aromas. They are precise and tense but the volumes poduced are quite low.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Subtle aromas of white flesh fruit mixed with zesty notes on a hint of minerality. Precise and dense. Well-balanced with a well-shaped acidity. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Pâté, lobsters and poultry as well as some goat cheeses.
