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

Vineyard

Pernand-Vergelesses, a charming village hidden behind the famous hill of Corton, contains a total of 5 premier crus. Domaine Chanson owns 13.3 acres of the premier Cru "Les Vergelesses", the best cru of Pernand. Chanson is in fact today the largest landowner in Pernand.

Vintage

After a very cold winter and cool and humid spring, the weather warmed up at the end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures allowed for a slow, steady ripening of the grapes. The harvest commenced mid-September under bright sunshine.

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 withcomplex 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. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel on the fine lees with no batonnage. Aging is in oak casks for 17 months.
