Domaine Besson Chablis 2016
That’s as close as we can get to “mind blown” sounds in print --- because our minds are TRULY, utterly, unspeakably blown. 95 POINT Chablis, $19?? 2016 vintage? Are you kidding? That is not a typo, folks, friends, loved ones, family, no no, that is just what is happening at this second here on a rainy Saturday in the Napa warehouse. Wow wow wow! BESSON!
We’ve been bringing in Besson direct from Burgundy for a few years now (those of you savvy enough to have purchased this in the past already KNOW how killer it is), and we always loved it, but can we tell how good it feels to see a fat 95 SCORE from Decanter on this? SO GOOD! Let’s rock!$19! Astounding. Burgundy’s steeliest, flintiest expression of Chardonnay comes from Chablis, and Besson’s take in this fantastic vintage is THRILLING. Madness not to grab a few or more of these. Cut grass, candied lemons, sweet grapefruit, a dash of something tropical (passionfruit?) all wrapped up in a racy, mouth-tingling, minerally zippicity (how’s THAT for a new word??). SO GOOD. Truly amazing. We hope you get some!!!
