Maison Chanzy

Maison Chanzy is located in the village of Bouzeron in the heart of Burgundy, just 3 kilometers south of Chagny. Vines were first planted at the domaine by monks from the Abbey of Cluny, once the largest church in Christendom. Maison Chanzy has 36 hectares of vineyards in the AOC classified areas of Bouzeron, Mercurey, Puligny-Montrachet, Rully, Santenay, and Vosne-Romanée.

Maison Chanzy produces around 250,000 bottles a year of red and white Burgundy wines from its 32 hectares of vineyards in Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuit and Côte Chalonnaise, as well producing a range of wines on a négociant basis. The director of the estate is Jean-Baptiste Jessiaume, named Côte de Beaune Young Winemaker of the Year in 2012, and his wines have received recent awards from Decanter Magazine, Concours Des Grand Vins de France and the Guide Hachette. Jean-Baptiste uses new oak sparingly at Chanzy, allowing the fruit to come to the fore and retaining great freshness in each cuvée. Chanzy’s are predominantly wines for drinking in their youth, although the premiers and grands crus reds have fine staying power once in the bottle.
