Site : Chanson is one of the major owners of Clos des Mouches with a vineyard of 4.5 hectares.

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 started early September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop aromas of exotic fruit mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks during 11 months.

Tasting : Gold colour. Subtle floral fragrances (Acacia and hawthorn) Delicate, soft and fleshy. Taut aftertaste with notes of mild Indian spices.
