Understated and elegant Grand Cru Chablis from an excellent domaine.
Jean-Claude Bessin has a high reputation in Chablis and is also fortunate to have a large holding of the renowned Grand Cru Valmur vineyard. The full and mouthfilling 2016 vintage is an undeniably complex wine. There's a whole array of aromas from mineral flintiness to citrus, honey and a touch of vanilla oak which all complement each other consummately. The palate is big and generous and goes on for ages leading to clean mineral sign off.
Just coming to its best it's capable of maturing well and properly cellared it be at its peak right through the 2020s.
