Chanson is one of the major owners of Clos des Mouches with a vineyard of 4.5 hectares.  In an ideal location on the hill at the southern end of the vineyards of Beaune on a spur pointing toward Pommard, the soils here are marl with sandy yellow limestone. A plot of 2.5 hectares is planted with Pinot Noir here.


The weather at the start of summer 2010 was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with a lot of sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The result was a red wine with an explosion of red fruits marvellously combined with the minerality of the terroirs.  Aging in French oak for 16 months has also softened this wine.


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.
