Country Of Origin: France

Gevrey Chambertin is located in the “Côte de Nuits”. The grapes stem from a selected plot in the northern part of the appellation “Gevrey Chambertin” located on a mid slope and bordering the Premiers Crus, the soils here are a mix of clay and limestone.

 

The grapes are sourced from a partner winegrower but the picking of the grapes is conducted by the Chanson team. After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals. September gave way to bright and warm weather, speeding up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. Long and careful macerations have allowed to enhance the fleshy texture and smooth and elegant tannins of the Pinot Noir.

 

Chanson Père & Fils is one of the oldest of Beaune’s great négociant houses. Though modest in size, Domaine Chanson has been hand-crafting exceptional wines for over 250 years, having been founded in 1750 and subsequently taken over by the Chanson family (already vineyard owners in Beaune, Savigny and Pernand) during the 19th century.

 

In 1999 the company was sold to Bollinger, and after some shrewd land purchases, Chanson's unique Domaine in the heart of Burgundy now comprises 45 hectares of vineyards, located entirely in the Côte de Beaune and exclusively in Premier and Grands Cru appellations including Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet, Pernard-Vergelesses and Corton-Vergennes.  This area provides about a quarter of the company’s production which extends to Chablis, the Mâconnais and the Beaujolais.

 

Président Gilles de Courcel who was appointed by Bollinger to run the business in 2002, Winemaker Jean-Pierre Confouron and their team have made considerable improvements over the years, beginning in the vineyards which are now ploughed and no longer fertilised. From 2009 the Domaine vineyards were all declared organic.

 

With a profound passion for Burgundy's finest appellations, the current team gracefully express the specific terroir of each parcel of land. The company has kept its old headquarters and in the purest of Burgundian tradition, ageing of wines in oak barrels takes place in Chanson's own Bastion; a late medieval stone tower which was once one of Beaune’s principal fortifications and which shelters the wines throughout the maturation process.
