Medium- bodied with fine minerality Chablis
"A particular success, Bessin's 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume wafts from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, wet stones, fresh pastry, beeswax and iodine. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and tensile, with racy acids, terrific depth at the core and a long, mineral finish. This is built to age." Robert Parker, August 2021

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Jean-Claude Bessin's wines seem to take on his personality: his range of Chablis wines are among the most highly regarded in the region. Evolution in recent years has been towards more natural winemaking. The majority of the crop is now harvested by hand, with natural yeasts preferred for fermentation. The wines have a long élévage on fine lees, the crus being bottled after 15 to 18 months, with a proportion of barrel fermentation and maturation for the top wines.
