DOMAINE CHANSON

Corton Vergennes Grand Cru

Chanson and the Hospices de Beaune are the major operators of this very small single vineyard on a hump of the hill of Corton. The vineyard used to belong to the Count of Vergennes, who was counsellor to Louis XVI and signatory for the Treaty of Independence with the United States of America.  The clay and limestone soils, covered with stones, produce a wine that is profound, with a endlessly fascinating play of richness and minerality. This wine is truly one of the showcases for Domaine Chanson.
