Description

The vines have an average age of 35 years and the vineyards are cultivated with great care with only a minimum of chemical treatments are applied. The Besson’s follow ‘lutte raisonnée’ in the vineyards and harvest the Grand Crus manually. The wines are fermented in temperature-controlled vats and then Besson uses a small percentage of oak for some cuvées, just to impart a touch of roundness to the finished wines. Just 5% vinified in used oak for 8 months; the rest is vinified in stainless steel

Tasting note

Pale yellow. Aromas of white blossoms and yellow fruits. Roundness and gluttony, flavors of yellow fruits.
