Chanson Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses 2019, Burgundy, France

Grape Variety: Chardonnay. Soil: Limestone. Site: Les Preuses is the Grand Cru of Chablis at the Northern end of the Grand Cru area. It is one of the smallest Grand Cru Climat and covers 11.4ha. The vines selected by Chanson are ideally located right in the heart of the plot. This brings to the wine the specific minerality of this terroir. 2019: After a mild winter, spring settled down with important variations of temperatures and abundant rain which engendered millerandge (small berries). Summer was warm punctuated by several heat waves and a few thunderstorm episodes which brought some water. The harvest started mid September under a bright sunshine. After a mild pressing, the wines are aged in oak casks for a period of 12 up to 14 months in the XVth century cellar. Moderate use of new oak. Tasting: Pale gold color. Floral fragrances mixed with white orchard frit aromas and honey. Delicate mineral expression. Well balanced and complex. Creamy with a tight texture. Long finish.
