Domaine Chanson Pernand-Vergelesses Premier Cru Les Caradeux 2020, Burgundy, France

Grape Variety: Chardonnay. Soil: Marly limestone with silt of clay. Site: This vineyard of 1.90 hectare is ideally located on mid-slope close to the hill of Corton-Charlemagne. Same soil structure and height as its famous neighbour. The only difference is the East exposure of the “Caradeux” which makes of this plot an exceptional “terroir” providing unique mineral characteristics. Vinification : after a mild pressing, this wine was vinified and aged for 12 to 14 months in oak casks in our cellars of the XVth century. Moderate proportion of new oak. Tasting: Pale gold color. Refreshing and intense aromas of green apple on a hint of minerality. Well-balanced. Dense and precise texture. Long and tight finish.
