is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Region : Burgundy
Appellation : Chablis Premier Cru
Vintage : 2011
Varietal : Chardonnay
Estate : This family estate established in 1880, is located in La Chapelle Vaupelteigne, 5 km north of Chablis.
Consisting essentially of old vines, it spreads over 3 appellations Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru and Chablis Grand Cru.
The first vintage bottled by Jean-Claude Bessin dates from 1992, and the wine has progressed since. It lost it's austere focus and took density and body, while remaining remarkably mineral.
Domaine Jean-Claude Bessin is noted one star by the Guide to the Best Wines of France 2014.
Tasting Notes : Pale colour and very pure nose. Lots of minerals immediately apparent on the palate with an underlying weight of fruit, great weight and very persistent.
Lovely aftertaste, a very classic Chablis from this special plot of old vines within Fourchaume.
