Domaine Michel Domaine Besson has a history extending back to 1902 and spanning four generations of winemaking. In 1902, Eug�ne 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 Chardonnay at its best.�Light yellow, almost transparent in the glass, but quite fleshy in the mouth, with delicate layers�of lemon, lime, grapefruit and pear framed by�that distinct Chablis flinty minerality. They produce a range of wines from the basic Chablis to Premier Crus and Grand Crus. Every one shows great personality and depth.vLike most Burgundy growers, Alain holds a hearty respect for�the land. He uses�a minimum of sprays and fertilizers and takes�a non-interventionist approach to farming. He�secured some fantastic parcels over the years, expanding to�21+ hectares of Chablis, Petit Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru and Chablis Grand Cru. They produce two�Grand Crus, one from Vaud�sir and the other from a tiny plot of vines smack dab�in the middle of the legendary Le Clos vineyard. The best Chablis�vineyards are loaded with the famous�kimmeridgian soil which has millions of seashells and tiny marine fossils preserved in its�chalky white limestone.�This gives the Chablis appellation its trademark flinty minerality and a fleshy density. It�also adds something elusive, almost like there�s fresh baked bread or an almond croissant hiding somewhere nearby.
