Wine of the Week – Chanson Macon la Roche Vineuse 2013 by Suzi Redmond
Chanson Macon la Roche Vineuse – 100% Chardonnay
One of the oldest houses, Chanson is quality producer from Burgundy, owned by Bollinger one of the great champagne houses. They make some really beautiful wines and are really quite reasonably priced.
This wine has a delicate buttery nose with aromas of citrus fruits, floral touches such as acaia flower and a flutter of mint.
On the palate this wine is smooth, round and creamy with a delightful crispness. All the aromas glide onto the palate along with a subtle minerality. This wine is beautifully balanced and has great finesse. A must try wine.
This wine will pair well with cheese such as chevre and roast chicken.
Available from O’Briens Wines.
