This 2019 Besson Petit Chablis is a pleasing, attractive wine with a pale gold colour and a hint of green on the rim.
The aroma is rich in complex citrus flavour with apple blossom and distinctive flintiness. There are also pear-like smells that are reminiscent of some of the more minerally vineyards in AC Chablis. In the background the slate and saline of true Chablis shine through.
The palate has a most enjoyable richness supported by a fine line of acidity that continues to the end of the palate.
This is a Petit Chablis with emerging complexity that has immediate appeal but will age well for up to 5 years.
Great value from one of the best winemakers in Chablis!
