This Burgundy wine estate has belonged to the same family since 1834. It was once owned by the Comtesse Chandon de Briailles, who was linked to the Moët et Chandon Champagne House. Today, her descendants, Claude and François de Nicolay, are at the head of this prestigious vineyard. The estate's vines are cultivated biodynamically (Ecocert and Demeter certifications). They produce red and white wines typical of the Côte de Beaune terroir. Domaine Chandon de Briailles is one of the "Domaines Familiaux de Bourgogne". This association brings together the region's most renowned wine producers.
