Tasting Notes: Apple, White Peach, Lemon, Honey
The Bessin family has been producing Chablis for over a century. Jean-Claude and his wife Evelyne are the fourth consecutive generation to manage the Domaine, and are now being assisted by their son. They practice “lutte raisonnee” – they plow between rows to encourage the vines to establish deep root systems and do not use pesticides. The 2016 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume includes the old vines that are often bottled separately as La Pièce au Comte. The warm exposure of Fourchaume gives very ripe grapes and wines a little rounder than the "classic" Chablis. Expressive aromas and taste.
