Along with Drouhin, Domaine Chanson is one of the major owners of Clos des Mouches, one of the Beaune's most highly respected premier cru vineyards (of which there are 44). The literal translation of mouche is a fly, but in fact the local usage means honey bees. It is a sunny terroir which benefits from its ideal location on the hill at the southern end of the vineyards of Beaune, rising up toward Pommard. Domaine Chanson's portion of the vineyard is around 4.5 hectares. A plot of 2.5 hectares is planted with Pinot Noir on a limestone subsoil covered with clay. A touch of sand in the soil contributes to the graceful character of the reds in this cru.
