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 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 took place mid 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 : Pale gold colour;. Floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit aromas with a delicate oak note. Ample, fresh and fleshy. Long and taut finish with an hazelnut note.
Food pairing : Shellfish, fish and cheese (goat).
