Site : In the south of the Côte de Beaune, the terroirs of Puligny Montrachet produces some of the greatest white Burgundies, including the famous Grand Cu Montrachet. The grapes vinified by Chanson are sourced from excellent plots of vineyards on mid-slope.
The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful white wines with fantastic acidity. Aged in oak for 8 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour with emerald tinges. Aromas of exotic fruit (mango), honey and vanilla. Beautiful structure. Round and generous. Mineral with delicate hints of oak. Long and linear finish.
Food pairing : Seafood, fish, mild cheeses as well as certain goat cheeses.
