Technical Info

Vineyard

This vineyard of 4.7 acres is ideally located on mid-slope close to the hill of CortonCharlemagne. It has the same marly limestone and clay silt structure and height as its famous neighbor. The only difference is the East exposure of the "Caradeux" which makes of this plot an exceptional terroir providing unique mineral characteristics.

Vinification

Chanson vinifies all their wines 100% whole cluster. They believe the complexity and structure of the wines is greatly enhanced, and the vinification process is improved. The major condition is that grapes must be perfect in terms of ripeness and condition. You can count on one hand the estates dedicated to whole cluster vinification in this manner. Then Champagne-style fractional pressing is done: very precise pressings for the purest juice, with lots vinified separately in small tanks. The wine is for the most part left alone, as the philosophy is one of "infusion rather than construction". Aged in oak during 12 months.

Vintage

After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there.
