Chanson Pere et Fils was founded in 1750 during the reign of Louis XV. The cellars are still located in the Bastion de L'Oratoire, a lookout and defensive tower built at the end of the 15th century. The Chanson family already owned a large Domaine located across Beaune, Savigny les Beaune and Pernand Vergelesses. Chanson survived the tribulations of the phylloxera epidemic and remain one of the most distinguished Maison in Le Bourgogne. An elegant wine, very pure and soft with good lively fruit of raspberry, cherry and a touch of licorice.
Grapes are exclusively sourced from select vineyards in the Côte de Nuits, from plots of Domaine Chanson and from sites in the south of the Côte de Beaune. Soil types are mostly clay over limestone, which yield grapes exhibiting an immense concentration of flavours. All the grapes are hand picked at optimum maturity. A careful selection of Pinot Noir in the vineyard produce crunchy red wines with pure aromas. Grapes enter the fermentation vats in whole bunches for improved temperature control, gradual release of the sugars, and a more refined tannic structure. A cold maceration is followed by a long alcoholic fermentation for greater depth and expression of the wine's structural elements.
Bright red colour with dark purple hues. Intense aromas of violet and liquorice with a hint of spice. Concentrated and well structured. Refreshing and lively. Spicy characters on the finish. Super classic style og Burgundy, ideal with braised and roasted meats, as well as sauced meat pastas.
