WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING
“Bright gold colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with intense aromas of white fruit, roasted hazelnut and warm brioche. Beautiful mineral note. Outstanding complexity. Deep and elegant. Notes of wet stones on the palate. A lot of substance underlined by a well-shaped acidity and delicate oak notes. Outstanding persistence with a slightly salty finish.” Domaine Chanson
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.
