Domaine Chanson Viré-Clessé 2018
Incredible value from one of the World's best wine regions.
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
Region: Burgundy, France
A gentle note of freshness, made up of lemon and Mirabelle, characterizes the nose on this wine. Hints of cold butter and chalk add nuance. Very refreshing aromas of citrus fruit (grapefruit) mixed with fresh honey enhanced by a hint of minerality. Well-structured and tense with well-integrated acidity, beautiful mineralityand an energetic aftertaste.
To visit Chanson is to travel back in time and experience the magic of the 1000-year-old tradition of winemaking. Chanson still vinifies and cellars its wines in the bastion as it has for over 200 years. The 10-meter thick walls of this ancient fortress make it ideal for winemaking.
Founded in 1750, Chanson is one of the five grand "shippers" of Burgundy's Côte d'Or- an estate steeped in centuries-old tradition and rich in viticultural history. As a négociant (winemaker and merchant) and a domaine (vineyard estate), Chanson has represented the best of Burgundy for more than 250 years, growing its own grapes, partnering with other growers, bottling, selling, and shipping its own wines.
