Thierry Desseauve, leading French Wine Critic and writer for the French consumer wine publication “Le Classement des Meilleurs Vins de France”, features Domaine Chanson as winery of the year.
Desseauve expresses that Chanson has become one of “the most reliable names in Burgundy.” On the spectacular 2015 vintage, which serves as a proper benchmark for the rebirth of the estate after being acquired by Champagne Bollinger, Desseauve says the wines are “of unparalleled density and finesse, are marvelous today and will continue to be so for the next 50 years.”Chanson-Wine-of-the-Year.pptx
Clos de Fèves is a Chanson “monopole” located in the very heart of the Premier Cru vineyards of Beaune. The vineyard, covering 9.4 acres, is located on mid-slope. It makes a complete, rounded wine, with striking depth and minerality.
Chanson is a true mid-size Domaine. Unlike many of their competitors, their wines are produced using the grower model rather than the négociant model. They have extensive holdings of over 111 acres of exclusively Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the heart of Burgundy. Chanson is obsessed with maintaining a consistent quality level across the entire range. The wines have a seductive and distinctive style due to the rigorous approach to viticulture and vinification.
