Domaine Xavier Besson is a small estate in the appellation of Givry that has been family owned for 4 generation. The vineyards are grown in clay soil, with a deep bedrock of limestone from vines that are 30 years old on average, with many vines above 50 years old. The fermentation is done with indigenous yeasts after a brief 3-5 day cold maceration. Aging takes place for 12 months in a combination of large 500L and traditional 228L barriques.

Domaine Besson has a history extending back to 1902 and spanning four generations of winemaking. In 1902, Eugene Besson planted 7.58 hectares off vines in Chablis. Today his grandson, Alain, owns the Domaine. Alain's daughter Camille received her diploma of oenology in 2013 and leads their winemaking efforts. These wines are all about pure elegance, stony, minerally, super-clean and complex  They produce a range of wines from the basic to Grand Crus. Every one shows great personality and depth. Like most Burgundy growers, Alain holds a hearty respect for the land. He uses a minimum amount of sprays and fertilizers and takes a non-interventionist approach to farming. He secured some fantastic parcels over the years.

In anticipation of a delicious treat

We haven’t tried this yet but purchased it having recently drunk a Domaine Besson Givry Le Haut Colombier 2010 which we had had in our wine rack for some time and which was absolutely delicious. We will be sharing it with our family on Christmas Day and really hope it lives up to our expectations.
