Michel Bettane, legendary French Wine Critic and writer for the French consumer wine publication La Revue du vin de France, awards Domaine Chanson’s winemaker Jean-Pierre Confuron a Master of Pinot Noir.
Bettane expresses great admiration for Confuron’s talents, “he possesses a magisterial comprehension of the grandeur and maturity of Burgundian Pinot Noir and how to take its best to produce long lived wines.””Chanson-Pinot-Masters-Jean-Pierre-Confuron-of-Chanson.pptx
Chanson is a true mid-size Domaine. Unlike many of their competitors, their wines are produced using the grower model rather than the négociant model. They have extensive holdings of over 111 acres of exclusively Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the heart of Burgundy. Chanson is obsessed with maintaining a consistent quality level across the entire range. The wines have a seductive and distinctive style due to the rigorous approach to viticulture and vinification.
