DOMAINE CHANDON DE BRIAILLES
The Chandon de Briailles estate is located in the Côte de Beaune, between the three communes of Savigny-lès-Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. The estate owned vineyards were bought in 1834 by Countess Chandon de Briailles (who had ties to the Champagne house Moët et Chandon) and her husband Pierre Guillemot. Since 2011, the vineyard area of 14 hectares has been completely biodynamically cultivated. The style of the red wines produced is very distinctive and strongly influenced by the high proportion of whole bunches in the vinification. The use of new barrels is kept to an absolute minimum and the use of sulphur is also added very sparingly. The reds are structured in their youth, though buffered by a tremendous wealth of fruit and have great ageing potential, only revealing their true depth and complexity after many years in bottle.
