Domaine Besson, Chablis 2020
A bright nose with lemony freshness, and a note of white pear. The palate has a slight chalky fizz, nice ripe orchard fruit and a good minerality, long, classy finish
Grapes are pressed slowly and at low pressure to ensure preservation of the fresh and fruity aromas. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats between 19 - 21 degrees. Around 3 percent is then aged in oak barrels for 18 months with the balance in stainless steel for around 12 months.
Adrien Besson, passionate about tractors since his childhood, obtained his professional baccalaureate in viticulture and oenology and then returned to take care of the vines in June 2013. Accompanied by four employees, he takes care of our vines throughout the year in order to produce quality grapes. Anxious to rationalize his practices, he set up the plowing of our entire plot, limiting chemical weeding.
He also instituted the leaf stripping of our wines, allowing natural ventilation of each vine stock and contributing to the reduction of contamination by pests. Since 2015, his faithful dog Lissa has accompanied him during all the work in the vineyard.
