After time exploring the vineyard, you’ll then drive to Chez Chanson for a further tour, private tasting of the domaine’s great wines and gastronomic lunch. A real highlight at Chez Chanson is the spectacular 15th century defence tower. Once a watch tower, the bastion (known locally as the Bastion de l’Oratoire) is classed as an historical monument that became the property of Chanson after the French Revolution. Featuring 8-metre-thick walls, today, the tower is used as the perfect spot for aging Domaine Chanson wines – simply because of its constant temperature and humidity level.
Domaine Chanson’s wholesome approach to winemaking perfectly fuses an age-old respect for traditional manual harvesting, the ‘whole bunch fermentation process’, and barrel aging within its 15th century bastion cellar is something quite spectacular.
