2014 Domaine Chanson - Vire Clesse - Bourgogne - 6 Bottles (0.75L)
Grape Variety : Chardonnay and Chardonnay Muscaté
Soil : Clay, chalk and marl
Site : In the heart of the Mâcon wine growing region, South of Burgundy. The two villages Viré and Clessé form a unique "terroir" on slopes facing South-East. In Viré, the soil is chalky with large layers of clay. In Clessé , the soil structure is slightly different with a combination of chalk and clay mixed with liasic marls combined with oyster- fossils which convey to the wine a specific minerality.This is one of the best white wines of the region combining suppleness and minerality.
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.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with refreshing aromas of citrus fruit (grapefruit) mixed with fresh honey enhanced by a hint of minerality. Well-structured and tense. Well-integrated acidity and beautiful minerality. Energetic aftertaste.
Food pairing : A fine, dry apéritif, great with light seafood and raw vegetable hors d'oeuvres.
In perfect condition. Have always been maintained well.
