Chablis Vielle Vignes 2016 Bessin

Since 1880 there have been 4 generations leading the Domaine. He is currently Jean Claude Bessin and his wife Evelyn, also a daughter of art, because his father was a winemaker. Their first harvest was 1992.

Domaine Bessin has an extension of just over 12 hectares all planted in Chardonnay, 5.25 of which in Chablis, 5 hectares divided over the 1er cru Montmains, La Forêt and Fourchaume and finally 2 hectares of Grand Cru Valmur.

The vineyards that compose the chablis are aged between 40 and 70 years.

Cellars and buildings for production are located in La Chapelle-Vaupelteigne, a small village 5 kilometers north of Chablis.

The harvest, carried out manually, always lasts around ten days. As soon as they reach the cellar, the grapes are immediately placed in a pneumatic press for a delicate and long extraction.

Vinification is then carried out in glazed tanks and equipped with a thermal regulation system to precisely control the fermentation, which occurs with native yeasts. The wines perform malo-lactic transformation and then refine on noble lees for a period of 15 months.
