Beaune 1er Cru Clos du Roi

Premier Cru

The vineyard of "Clos du Roi" is located below "Les Marconnets" on a fold in the hill. This old property of the Dukes of Burgundy was annexed by King Louis XI of France after the death of Charles the Bold, hence the reference to "the king's" vineyard. Chanson owns around 3 ha,or 35% of the climat. Two thirds of the vines here owned by Chanson are planted with Pinot Noir. The plot is low on the slope, and known to produce elegant, stylish wines for relatively early drinking.
