Pernand Vergelesses Les Caradeux 1er Cru 2014 Domaine Chanson
Pernand-Vergelesses Les Caradeux 1er Cru Domaine Chanson, Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, 2014
Pale golden colour. Very delicate fragrances of citrus fruit mixed with apple and fresh honey. Beautiful minerality and delicate oak note. Well balanced and well-structured. Precise and tense with a well-shaped minerality an a very pure fruit. Refreshing aftertaste.
2014 is an incredible vintage for white Burgundy. After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid september under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks for 13 months.
To be enjoyed with seafood, fish, and mild cheeses.
