    Winemaker Notes

    From a parcel of Le Petit Pretan that is not 1er Cru, it is a fresher, more brightly-stained version of its 1er Cru cousin, with a mouthwatering combination of fruit and game. This wine has outstanding energy and a high pitch to the very pure red berry and floral flavors. Tactile, palate-staining wine.

    Domaine Besson The Estate with it’s vineyards Winery Image
    Domaine Xavier Besson is a small estate in the appellation of Givry that has been family owned for 4 generation. The vineyards are grown in clay soil, with a deep bedrock of limestone from vines that are 30 years old on average, with many vines above 50 years old. The fermentation is done with indigenous yeasts after a brief 3-5 day cold maceration. Aging takes place for 12 months in a combination of large 500L and traditional 228L barriques. The combination of old vines, conscientious vineyard work, and low yields, all contribute to the balanced wines that Besson produces. Farming from superb vineyards like ‘Les Grands Prétans,’ Besson always provides superb Burgundy value: concentrated and densely expressive with brilliant perfume, heady fruit, and a velvety mouthfeel.

    Cote Chalonnaise, Burgundy

    Noted as the preferred wine of King Henry IV of the late 1500s—though maybe because his mistress came from here!—Givry is a top red wine-producing village in the Côte Chalonnaise.

    Its firmly structured reds, made exclusively from Pinot Noir, also boast plenty of blackberry and strawberry fruit with supple tannins that benefit from about two to five years in the bottle. The robust fruit and firmness on the palate in a Givry red begs for dishes such as mixed charcuterie, braised veal, stewed poultry or roasted duck.

    Typical Givry whites have a fresh bouquet of lemon, lime, white flower licorice and can benefit and become softer with age.

    Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
