Domaine Chanson Pernand-Vergelesses Les Caradeux Premier Cru 75cl 13.5% ABV
Domaine Chanson Pernand-Vergelesses Les Caradeux Premier Cru, Burgundy, France
A pale colour White Wine. Mineral with very subdued aromas in its youth. Taut and precise with salty notes. Sappy wine true to its terroir.
This vineyard of 1.90 hectare is ideally located on mid-slope close to the hill of Corton-Charlemagne. It has the same soil structure (Marly limestone with silt of clay) 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.
After a cold winter and a mild spring, the weather conditions in summer (with important differences of temperature between day and night from August onwards) were ideal and enabled a perfect maturation of the grapes.
The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop aromas of exotic fruit mixed with floral fragrances. Ageing in oak casks during 11 months.
