Style Well-balanced and concentrated.

Bright ruby colour, intense aromas of red berries, ripe black cherry and plum mixed with an array of spices, hint of chocolate and a delicate vanilla note.

A superb magnum of red to impress at a dinner party.

Country Of Origin: France

In the heart of the Premier Cru vineyards of Domaine Chanson is a plot which covers 4 hectares, in the centre of the Beaune territory. Its soils are a mix of limestone and clay, growing premium Pinot Noir grapes. After a very cold winter and a demanding spring of 2011, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals. A bright and warm September speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September and long and careful macerations have allowed for smooth and elegant tannins in the Chanson Pinot Noir wines. This wine was aged in oak for 19 months.

 

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.
