Domaine Besson

Lying on 8 hectares only, the vines from the Domaine Besson are planted in white grapes for 25% and in red for 75%. The desire to highlight the personality of each terroir, including in the Givry-village appellation, has resulted in a palette of eight cuvées today. Instead of selling 8 “climats” (specific growths), the Domaine chose to blend its “village” appellations to produce only one Givry red wine called “Haut Colombier”. The red Givry 1er cru “Les Grands-Prétans” comes from a specific plot of 1.50 ha with an average age of 30 years old which is ideally located, right in the hillside southeast exposure. It has been named as “one of the best wines from the Appellation Côte Chalonnaise” according to Parker’s Wine Buyers’ Guide.
