Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Marl,chalk and limestone
Site : White wines are very unusual in Savigny-les-Beaune, the vineyards producing essentially red wines. The particular nature of the soil "Hauts Marconnets" with Marl, chalk and limestone encouraged Chanson to plant Chardonnay. The vineyard of 2,18 hectares is ideally situated high up on the hill of Savigny-les-Beaune, facing south-east, close to the hills of Beaune 1er Crus.
The Vintage 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid september under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks.
Tasting : Pale gold colour with emerald tinges. Floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit aromas and fresh honey. Taut, precise and well-balanced. Firm texture associated with a well-shaped acidity. Well integrated oak note. Long and generous aftertaste
Food pairing : Shellfish, fish and cheese (goat).
