PRODUCER

Chanson Pere & Fils

Chanson Pere et Fils was established in Beaune in 1750, making it one of the oldest domaines in Beaune. The original founder, Simon Verry, named the business after himself. A century later, the family sold their business to their young manager, Alexis Chanson. In 1999 the 100-acre estate was sold to Champagne Bollinger and Jean-Pierre Confuron was brought in as winemaker. Chanson Pere et Fils has Grand Cru and Premier Cru parcels, including the Beaune Premier Cru monopole Clos des Feves.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Bourgogne, Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune

Burgundy in eastern France is, if not the most famous and storied wine region in the world, certainly one of the top two or three. Its winemaking history dates from the Roman era, and its relatively small size and reputation for outstanding wines means that the best wines of Burgundy are generally among the world’s most prized – and costly – wines. At about 110,000 vineyards acres, Burgundy is only 40% as big as Bordeaux, and its system of dividing up vineyards into small, family-owned parcels makes understanding the wines of Burgundy a life-long pursuit for Burgundy enthusiasts. The three main grapes of Burgundy are Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gamay. Burgundy is a long, narrow, north-south running region consisting of five main areas. They are Chablis in the north, Côte D’Or, Côte Chalonnaise, Mâconnais and Beaujolais, which is just above the Rhone Valley. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are grown throughout most of Burgundy but Gamay is grown primarily in Beaujolais. The appellation system and rules about labeling can be confusing and the system classifies regions, villages and even individual vineyards. Grand Cru is the most prestigious appellation category, followed by Premier Cru and many village and regional appellations.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, AOC (AC)

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
