Chanson Père & Fils

Chanson Père & Fils

It is already a good few years since Bollinger took over Chanson Père et Fils in 1999 from the Marion family and rejuvenated one of Beaune’s most famous names. Established in 1750, part of their cellars still occupies one of the round defensive bastions that link Beaune's town walls. 

Vincent Avenel, managing director, openly admits that any of the big houses such as Chanson sat on their laurels in the 1990s on the back of easy sales and it was the rise of the smaller domaines that provided the wake-up call to get the best out of their vineyards. And what a vineyard holding it is with 45 ha of premier and grand cru vines including 25 ha of prime vineyards in the Beaune appellation. Their own harvesting of further vineyards under rental agreements almost doubles production. Jean-Pierre Confuron is now full-time technical director, and being himself from a smaller family estate in Nuits-St-Georges, has brought with him the necessary rigour of hard pruning, organic methods (whenever feasible) and the separate vinification of each individual plot. The resulting wines are consistently fine expressions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
