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.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 93
Impressive, sappy and alluringly perfumed with plenty of summer pudding fruit, notes of rose petal and violet and subtle vanilla oak. The tannins are very fine here, complemented by chalky minerality. Textured, youthful and long on the palate, this would reward cellaring. Drinking Window 2019 - 2025

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.
