Chablis Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Jean-Claude Bessin 2018


“Bottled with a highest ever alcohol level of 14.1%, but such is Jean-Claude Bessin’s skill as a winemaker that the resulting wine doesn’t seem remotely heavy or ponderous. Showing some skin tannins, notes of pink grapefruit and classic old vine concentration, this is comparatively soft but has enough extract for balance.” 92 Points, Decanter

“Here too there is fine classic Chablis character suffusing the ripe white orchard fruit, iodine and mineral reduction aromas. The old vines are in evidence as the mid-palate density of the middle weight plus flavours is clearly superior as is the impressively complex and persistent finish that displays plenty of salinity. This is well-worth your attention.” Allen Meadows, Burghound
