Domaine Chanson Vire-Clesse 2014
The wine is fermented in stainless steel and sees no oak. It’s pale gold in colour and offers elegant lime and floral notes on the nose and palate. It walks a nice line between crisp and zingy lime, delicate citrus blossoms and a luscious rounded butteriness. It offers more weight and complexity than I expected in an unoaked wine. Totally dry and unlike Australian Chardonnay, you’ll find more herbal notes than fruit on the finish. Unfolding flavours secured with fresh acidity give good length to each delicious mouthful.
Winemaker “Pale gold colour. Delicate fragrances of fern and lime blossom mixed with citrus and fresh honey enhanced by a hint of minerality. Well structured. Beautiful minerality. Well integrated acidity. Generous aftertaste.”
