Chanson Pere & Fils Burgundy Tasting – One of Ontario’s top wine merchants, John Hanna & Sons dropped by with Sophie Baldo (export manager) from Chanson Pere & Fils to present a selection of some of Chanson's top Burgundy wines.
In conjunction with a special launch of the 2005 Chanson Beaune 1er Cru "Teurons" at LCBO Vintages, we were honoured to have Ms. Baldo at the cellar.
Chanson operates strictly within the limits of Burgundy, whereas many other burgundy producers have extended their areas of activity into other regions such as the South of France. Since Chanson’s acquisition by the Group Bollinger in 1999, major investments have been made in both the winery and vineyards. The name Chanson carries with it 250 years of history. Reinforced by its location in the heart of the old town of Beaune and the imposing 16th century “Bastion” (the ancient tower, part of the old ramparts) where the wines mature in casks.
The young Chanson head winemaker, Jean-Pierre Confuron, is part of a new generation of superstar winemakers emerging in Burgundy. Confuron aims to express the purity of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown in the “terroirs” of Burgundy.
