Chanson

I thought Chanson was one of the best cellars in 2016 and they have produced excellent wines again in the 2017 vintage. Founded in 1750, this is one of the great historic producers of Burgundy. Jean-Pierre Confuron has made these wines from 45 hectares of domaine vineyards and bought-in grapes. Many of the wines are made and matured in the defence tower, the Bastion, which dates from the 15th century. Some of the walls are eight metres thick! Jean-Pierre uses 100% whole-bunch fermentation for the domaine reds, which gives them a pure, fresh and intensely aromatic character. Harvest began on 3rd September.
