Located in Beaune, the Chanson Père et Fils house was founded in 1750 by Simon Verry. It was then taken over by Nicolas Chanson in the 19th century, who developed the house’swinemaking activity and gave it its current name. It was purchased in 1999 by the Bollinger group; the vineyard now spans 45 hectares. Jean-Pierre Confuron advises the team, in both vineyard and cellar. The vines are grown organically, and the soils tilled; in the winery, a high proportion of stems is retained. The wines (especially reds) are of great quality and amply reward cellaring.
About the cuvée
After pressurisation, only the heart of the cuvée is conserved and fermented in oak barrels with regular stirring. Its golden appearance makes way for a fruity nose with honey and vanilla notes alongside some hints of minerality. The dense and ample texture brings character to the wine. The pure aromas are lifted by a beautiful acidity which brings a long, fresh finish. You will have to be patient in order for this wine to express its full aromatic potential.
