“A gorgeous red, exuding a harmonious combination of ripe, sweet cherry, black currant and smoke flavors. Firmly structured, with fine concentration and a lingering aftertaste of spice. Best from 2020 through 2035. 92/100” Wine Spectator

The construction of this real defence tower was decided under Louis XI and achieved under François Ier. Built as a defence tower and classified as an historic monument with its 8-metres thick walls, it became the property of Chanson under the Revolution. The constant temperature and humidity guaranteed by its walls make it an ideal cellar. Today on 4 different levels, the fourth built in 1826, the Bastion Chanson is entirely dedicated to wine ageing. The first three house red wines where each floor is destined for a vintage. As for the fourth floor, it accommodates white wines. Vincent Avenel and Jean Pierre Confuron have a profound attachment to the Burgundy terroir. They share the same drive to defend the viticultural heritage of Chanson, whilst flying the flag high for the Burgundy region.
