Savigny-Les-Beaune 1er Cru Hauts Marconnets 2018

Savigny-Les-Beaune, Burgundy

White wines are very unusual in Savigny-Les-Beaune. The vineyards mainly produce red wines. However, Chanson decided to plant Chardonnay here too because of the particular nature of the soil. The wine shows aromas of exotic fruit mixed with floral fragrances.

Wine Enthusiast "[...] swirling reveals melted butter. The palate is fresh with Mirabelle fruit and more of that buttery aroma, bedded on a gentle midpalate texture. It offers both concentration and balance."
