About
They were looking for a restaurant, but ended up buying a wine estate. In 1974 Catherine and Daniel Chanzy came to Bouzeron at the top of the Côte Chalonnaise. Things did not quite work out as planned and they soon found themselves owning eight hectares of vines. The domaine quickly grew, and more vines were added to the initial eight hectares. In 1979 a new cellar – 60 meters long – was built, and in 1987 yet another one. Then in 1997 a new cuverie was built, together with a laboratory.

Today Domaine Chanzy covers 35 hectares. The domaine has expanded into both the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, and the second generation – Anne-Sophie and Olivier Chanzy – has joined in with their parents. The majority of the vines of Domaine Chanzy are found in the Côte Chalonnaise. Apart from the 15 hectares in Bouzeron, where they have the monopole Clos de la Fortune, they also have vineyards in both Rully and Mercurey. The Clos de la Fortune is planted with three grape varieties – aligoté, chardonnay and pinot noir – thus producing three different wines, Bouzeron, Bourgogne blanc and Bourgogne rouge.
