ABOUT

The wines of Jean-Claude Bessin and his son Romain set a benchmark for Chablis year after year. The Chablis Vieilles Vignes is a pure and refined expression of Chardonnay, whilst the Premier Crus Fourchaume, La Forêt and Montmains are supremely elegant and bursting with life. Let us not forget the Grand Cru Valmur; an awesome display of power combined with a delicate and tantalising mouthfeel. There is also La Pièce au Comte; produced only in generous vintages and made from a specific parcel within the Premier Cru Fourchaume vineyard. There are 2 hectares of vines which are harvested mainly by hand and the wines undergo an extended ageing period of up to 18 months, giving them great complexity. This is one of the most highly regarded, traditional estates in Chablis today.
