The History of Chanson is closely tied to the History of France. It perfectly reflects the evolution of the country through 260 years of existence. Every men and women who proudly beared the colours of Chanson over centuries shared and still share a profound respect for the earth, the vine and the wine.
Gilles de Courcel and Jean-Pierre Confuron, pure Burgundians, took over from the Chanson family in 1999. Both are ardent supporters of an integrated viticulture, deeply respectful of the terroirs. The respect of vine, combined with precise and meticulous vinifications, aim to give the specificity of each terroir and offers tastings that are characteristic of the region.
The Premiers Crus vineyards of Domaine Chanson are aged in casks in the Bastion cellars.This cuvée is a blend of grapes sourced from selected plots among the Premiers Crus of the Domaine - Beaune Clos du Roi, Beaune Clos des Marconnets, Beaune Bressandes, Beaune Teurons, Beaune Champimonts, Beaune Clos des Mouches and Beaune Clos des Fèves Monopole. This association of the different terroirs of Beaune Premiers Crus and among them the flagships of Chanson give to the wine a unique character and texture.
