Maison Chanzy was founded by Daniel Chanzy in 1974 in Bouzeron, located in the northern part of the Côte Chalonnaise region of Burgundy. In 2013, a group of Burgundy wine lovers purchased Chanzy with a group of investors 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. The vineyards are farmed sustainably.

Les Gravières has an average vine age of 45 years and receives ten days of cold pre-fermentation maceration before aging ten months in 100% used 228-liter barrels. Les Gravières should show typicity of Santenay with red fruit and floral notes, and elegance on the palate.
Red Burgundy shows the complex aromas and flavors of the Pinot Noir variety with notes varying from red strawberries to black cherries with earth, spice, herbs, and flowers. It is typically a medium-bodied wine, with high acidity that allows it to age well and pair easily with a wide range of foods.
Red Burgundy might be the world's most flexible food wine. The wine’s high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.
