Chanson owns a vineyard of 5.4 hectares in premier Cru “Les Vergelesses”. One of the plots of this vineyard has been selected to produce this PernandVergelesses village, its soils are clay and limestone.
After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening process of the grapes.
The harvest commenced mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors associated with meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture. Ageing in oak casks during 12 months.
