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.
White wines are very unusal in Savigny-les-Beaune, the vineyards producing essentially red wines. The particular nature of the soil "Hauts Marconnets" with Marl, chalk and limestone encouraged Chanson to plant Chardonnay. The vineyard of 2,18 hectares is ideally situated high up on the hill of Savigny-les-Beaune, facing south-east, close to the hills of Beaune 1er Crus.
