WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
"The cherry, raspberry and blackberry fruit leans toward the exotic side in this complex, dense red. Black olive, violet, toasty oak spice and graphite accents add interest and the finish is long and muscular. Built for the long haul. Best from 2020 through 2036." Wine Spectator, 95pts
"From a monopole vineyard, the 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Fèves is a structured, moderately tannic effort that’s going to benefit from cellaring. Flowers, black cherries, violets, and smoked earth all emerge from this medium-bodied 2015 that has a ripe, layered, beautifully pure profile. The tannins come out more on the palate, but they’re covered by plenty of sweet 2015 fruit at present. Give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following decade. Like all the Pinots Noirs from Chanson, this cuvée wasn’t destemmed and spent 17 months in barrel." Jeb Dunnuck, 94pts
One of the great historic producers of Burgundy, founded in 1750 and purchased by the Champagne Bollinger family in 1999, Chanson today is one of only six producers in Burgundy still remaining from the 18th century and earlier. Chanson has been meticulously managed since 1999 to become one of Burgundy’s top estates. Domaine Chanson’s extensive holdings, and the extraordinary rigor and precision of their approach in the vineyards and cellars, result in wines of individuality and quality.
Chanson owns 111 acres in Burgundy, 62 of which are in Beaune, including their monopole Clos des Fèves, and important holdings of Clos des Mouches and Corton Vergennes. They farm organically, harvest all grapes and vinify all wines, both for their estate holdings and contracted vineyards. Requiring diligent viticulture and perfect ripeness, they vinify all whites and reds 100% whole cluster at their state of the art facility on the outskirts of Beaune.
Aging takes place in the Bastion they own, one of the 5 massive towers from the 15th century fortifications that encircle the heart of medieval Beaune. Once you have the opportunity to taste through their range, you will see the purity and complexity of their wines, ranging from their regional and village wines, to their greatest Grand Cru holdings.
