Domaine Chanson Vire-Clesse 2012
Pale gold color. Delicate aromas of fern, citrus fruit and fresh honey enhanced by a hint of minerality. Well-structured, beautiful minerality. Well-integrated acidity with a generous aftertaste.
Chardonnay. Founded in 1750, Chanson is one of the five grand "shippers" of Burgundy's Cote d'Or-an estate steeped in centuries-old tradition and rich in viticultural history. As a negociant (winemaker and merchant) and a domain (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. Its celebrated bastion, a 15th-century fortress first rented and then acquired in 1794 to cellar the wines, is an internationally celebrated icon of Burgundy (the largest of six bastions that form part of the wall surrounding the city of Beaune).
