Winery: Domaine Chanson
Founded in 1750, Chanson is one of the five grand "shippers" of Burgundy's Côte d'Or-an estate steeped in centuries-old tradition and rich in viticultural history.
As a négociant (winemaker and merchant) and a domaine (vineyard estate), Chanson has represented the best of Burgundy for more than 250 years, growing its own grapes, partnering with other growers, bottling, selling, and shipping its own wines.
Gilles de Courcel is as Burgundian as they come: born and raised in Pommard, he has worked in the wine trade his entire life. His family has owned and run the Domaine de Courcel for more than 400 years (famous for its extensive holdings in Premier Cru vineyards). Indeed, you could say that Gilles, like the wines, "was born in the vineyard."
Gilles oversees the vineyards and winemaking at Domaine Chanson in Burgundy. Gilles’ quality focused approach concentrates on honestly and fairly representing the nuances of the Burgundy villages. The wines are a benchmark for the region as each year they offer a consistent, modern definition of the area.
