Technical Info

Vineyard

The vineyard of "Clos du Roi" is located below "Les Marconnets" on a fold in the hill. This old property of the Dukes of Burgundy was annexed by King Louis XI of France after the death of Charles the Bold, hence the reference to "the king’s" vineyard. Chanson owns around 7.5 acres, or 35% of the climat. Two thirds of the vines here owned by Chanson are planted with Pinot Noir. The plot is low on the slope, and known to produce elegant, stylish wines for relatively early drinking.

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. 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. Aging is in oak casks for 16 months.

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, and the extraordinary rigor and precision of their approach in the vineyards and cellars, result in wines of individuality and quality.
