Maison Chanson Père et Fils is one of the oldest ‘houses’ of Beaune (founded in 1750) and also one of the larger owners of Beaune premier cru vineyard. Bollinger took over in 1999 and this saw Chanson take on a new lease of life.
“This beautiful house from Beaune … has now fully found its mark and style. It competes with the best thanks to their wines with clear and pure style, both white and red. A state of the art winery and the relevant advice of Jean-Pierre Confuron, in the vineyards as well as in the winery, explain the very clear expression across the wide range of Domaine wines.” - REVUE DU VIN de FRANCE -Guide Edition 2012 (France’s leading wine magazine)
Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced exceptional red wines with very pure aromas. Grapes are exclusively sourced from select vineyards in the Côte de Nuits, from plots of Domaine Chanson and from terroirs located in the south of the Côte de Beaune.
Notes on the 2019 vintage:
"This Beaune-based negociant house has made a richly dense wine that is packed with succulent black fruits and freshened with acidity. It is a satisfying wine, ripe and with a balanced structure. Drink from late 2021." - 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast
"Dark ruby colour with purple nuances. Intense aromas of ripe blackberries mixed with spices and liquorice. Crunchy and generous. Complex and deep texture. Well-crafted tannins. Long and fruity aftertaste." - Producer
