Jean-Claude Bessin

Jean-Claude Bessin and his wife own and operate this estate in the Chablis region of Burgundy/France. Their Chardonnay is grown in four different vineyard locations (see below). Production averages 550 - 600 hectoliters (5,000 - 6,000 cases). No oak is used in the production of their wines with 25% of the wine sold in bulk to negociant. Their first vintage in bottle was 1992 (but they began sells in bulk in 1990). These wines are a good example of the differences in Terroir: Chablis being open and flowing, "Montmains" harder and more mineral, Fourchaume rich and more exotic, "Valmur" having the most viscosity, power and length of finish. The Cru "Montmains" is always released last do to its close, mineral and acidic character when young.
