Technical Info

Estate

One of the great historic producers of France, 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, andthe extraordinary rigor and precision of their approach in the vineyards and cellars, result in wines of individuality and quality.

Vineyard

The Premier Cru vineyards of Domaine Chanson are aged in casks in the Bastion cellars. This cuvee is a blend of grapes sourced from selected plots among the Premiers Crus of the Domaine - Beaune Clos du Roi, Beaune Clos des Marconnets, Beaune Bressandes, Beaune Teurons, Beaune Champimonts, Beaune Clos desMouches and Beaune Clos des Feves Monopole. This association of the different terroirs of Beaune Premier Crus and among them the flagships of Chanson give to the wine a unique character and texture.

Vinification

Chanson vinifies all their wines 100% whole cluster. They believe the complexity and structure of the wines is greatly enhanced, and the vinification process is improved. The major condition is that grapes must be perfect in terms of ripeness and condition. You can count on one hand the estates dedicated to whole cluster vinification in this manner. The reds have a perceptible style as a result: beautiful aromatics with complex spice complementing fruit on the nose and palate. Chanson also strives to maximize the preservation of fresh fruit characteristics. Grapes are chilled immediately on arrival in a proprietary tunnel they developed: a very quick chill with no oxygen exposure. Reds then get a long cold soak and maceration. And then they use Champagne-style fractional pressing: very precise pressings for the purest juice, with lots vinified separately in small tanks. Aging is in oak casks for 15 months.
