Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2021
Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Three plots of vineyards from selected "vignerons", ideally located in the heart of the village of Chassagne Montrachet - close to the Premiers Crus area. South, South-East orientation.
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. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of pale fleshed fruit and citrus fruit. Delicate vanilla note. Complex and well-balanced. Precise and dense texture. Elegant oak note. Long and refreshing finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with foie gras, grilled fish, white meat and strong cheeses (Epoisses, Roquefort and Munster).
