Chanson Père & Fils Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2005

External Review by WineExpress.com:

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. Chanson's holdings comprise some of Burgundy's most coveted vineyards (over 90 acres, including 10 Premier Crus, one Grand Cru (Corton), and a rare monopole Premier Cru vineyard. Chanson can count French philosophe Voltaire, romantic poet Lamartine, and the Bonaparte family among its clients. This Grand Cru scored 93 points in Wine Spectator who said "Dense, yet elegant and pure. Blackberry, cherry, mineral and spice aromas and flavors stain the palate and persist through the lingering finish. The aftertaste is long and focused, a sure sign of good things to come. Best from 2015 through 2035." Very Limited!! ON SALE!!

In the XIX the Chanson Family took control and the company continued to expand under the leadership of Alexis Chanson. The Chanson family already owned a large Domaine located across Beaune, Savigny les Beaune and Pernand Vergelesses which was added to the company’s assets, thus giving it a new dimension. Chanson survived the Phylloxera crisis and continued to increase the size of their holdings. Visits by appiontment. Read less
