The Fortress that Divided the Winemakers from the King at Domaine Chanson
Located in the heart of Cotes de Beaune, the historical centre of Burgundy, France is a Domaine Chanson with its bold and brave history this winery is one of the most historic wine producers of Burgundy, founded in 1750 by Alexis Chanson.
An amazing attribute to the estate is the Bastion, which is one 6 fortresses that formed part of a wall surrounding the city of Beaune that was created in the 15th century by the first Dukes of Burgundy.
Since 2000 the vineyards were run organically without the use of fertilisers and herbicides and the winery was modernised and Chanson is now one of the largest owners of Beaune premier cru vineyards.
Chanson own 111 acres in Burgundy, 62 acres are in Beaune, including their monopoly Clos des Feves, Clos des Mouches and Corton Vergennes.
They harvest the grapes and vinify the wines for both the estate and their other holdings in 100% whole clusters for both red and white wines in their facility on the outskirts of Beaune with ageing has taken place in the famous Bastion.
The tower of the Bastion has 8 metre thick walls and four levels with a vat structure and oak casks that house the white wines and the constant temperature and humidity is what makes it a great cellar. The first three floors house red wines and the fourth floor keeps the white wines which are aged perfectly in this environment.
