Chanson Corton Vergennes Grand Cru 2017, Burgundy, France

Chanson and the Hospices de Beaune are the major operators of this very small single vineyard an Chanson and the Hospices de Beaune on a hump of the hill of Corton. The vineyard used to belong to the Count of Vergennes, who was counselor to Louis XVI and signatory for the Treaty of Independence with the United States of America. Pale gold color. The aromas are still discreet given off delicate buttery and nutty notes. Well-structured and dense. The saline character, evidencing its poly phenolic richness, is very present and gives an idea of the outstanding aging capacity of this wine.
