After a cool winter and a frost episode in April, the weather at the end of spring was warmer but rainy which engendered a late flowering and Millerandage (small size berries) . The summer was warm and dry. The harvest took place mid september under a bright sunshine. Vinification : after a mild pressing, this wine was vinified and aged for 12 months in oak casks in the XVth century cellars of Chanson. Moderate proportion of new oak.

Lovely flinty reduction on the nose giving smoke, matchstick and flint. Vivid green apple fruit and a full, glossy texture. Rich and long with attractive dairy notes on the finish.

Intense aromas of butter, ripe yellow peach, butter and oak, Warming with a rich toasted oak and stone fruit character, lightened by a touch of salinity. Very smooth and moreish. Pairings: Shellfish, creamy cheeses, pâté, roast chicken.
White wines are unusual in Savigny-les-Beaune, the vineyards producing essentially red wines. The particular nature of the soil 'Hauts Marconnets' with Marl, chalk and limestone encouraged Chanson to plant Chardonnay. The vineyard of 2,18 hectares is ideally situated high up on the hill of Savigny-les-Beaune, facing south-east, close to the hills of Beaune 1er Crus.
