*BROKING STOCK LYING UNDER BOND, OCTAVIAN. ADDITIONAL DELIVERY CHARGES MAY APPLY*
Conceived under Louis XI and completed under François 1er, the medieval Bastion (Le Bastion de l’Oratoire) at the heart of Domaine Chanson, and indeed Beaune, is dedicated wholly to the ageing and safeguarding of wines from Chanson’s 45 hectares of exclusively Premier and Grand Cru vineyards. It is one of five such buildings still present in Beaune, and has been in constant use since Domaine Chanson was founded in 1750. The Bollinger family took ownership of the Domaine in 1999.
"Deep purplish red. Gentle spicy oak overlay on dark-red fruit aromas. A light and attractive dustiness. A firm grip even though the tannins are very smooth – overall more chewy than most of the Chanson Beaune reds but no astringency at all. Lovely harmony and freshness and persistence." Julia Harding MW
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
