*ALL PRICES IN BOND*
Modest in size, Chanson Père & Fils is one of the oldest of Beaune’s great négociant houses, having been founded in 1750 by Simon Verry. The Chanson family, already vineyard owners in Beaune, Savigny and Pernand, took control during the 19th century.
The Domaine was purchased by the Bollinger family in 1999 and their investments have significantly improved the quality and appreciation of the wines in recent years. A modern winery was built in Savigny-lès-Beaune in 2010, where juice and grapes are transported by gravity, and precise plots of land are vinified separately. In 2015, a bespoke cooling tunnel was installed in the winery to cool the Pinot Noir grapes as soon as they arrive from the vineyards to preserve the freshness and elegance of flavours.
The terroir: Domaine Chanson exclusively use grapes from Premier and Grand Cru vineyards and are one of the top Premier Cru specialists in Beaune, owning 25ha of their own Premier Cru vineyards. The Chanson estate produces over a quarter of its own fruit requirements, with the utmost respect for nature. The other Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes are sourced from growers selected in alignment with Chanson’s quality commitments. Individual plot selection produces fruit which is vinified separately throughout the fermentation and ageing processes.
The Domaine Chanson “personality”: A ‘Domaine’ philosophy producer; focusing on the authenticity, purity and precision of style and terroir.
