Blend: Pinot Noir
From: Burgundy (Cote Chalonnaise), France
Taste: Seriously impressive, this Bourgogne rouge is lively, bright, and clear from start to finish. You’ll perceive the typical notes of cherry, raspberry, spice and floral notes, but it’s the essence of this wine that practically jumps out of the glass with an impressive juxtaposition between supple and structure, with a long finish that exceeds its price.
Pairing: Take your time and enjoy Sam Sifton’s Chicken Confit With Roasted Potatoes and Parsley Salad. True, this will take a while, but it’ll be a largely unattended 3 hours! And, if you’re like the rest of us, please double up on this recipe, because this one just serves two.
Maison Chanzy was founded by Daniel Chanzy in 1974 in Bouzeron, located in the northern part of the Côte Chalonnaise (just south of the Côte d’Or, north of the Maconnais) region of Burgundy. Chanzy envisioned Côte Chalonnaise wines that would rival the greatness of the Côte d’Or and invested heavily in vineyards there. We’re still waiting for that day, but these wines offer a glimpse at how great this oft overlooked part of Burgundy could be.
In 2013, a group of Burgundy wine lovers purchased Chanzy and have since added a second holding in Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Beaune for a total of 163 acres planted. With full control of production from vineyard to bottling, Chanzy’s impressive range spans 40 appellations in 8 villages of Côte Chalonnaise and Côte d’Or.
Chanzy is now one of the leading producers in the Côte Chalonnaise with holdings in Bouzeron, Rully, Givry, and Mercurey. The winery itself is in the village of Bouzeron where it owns 16 hectares, including the monopole Clos de la Fortune which serves as the flagship wine.
