"Another reference point wine from Bessin"
2020 Bessin-Tremblay Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

Posted by Ian McFadden

For many years Bessin has been an insider wine quietly bought by fans of classic Chablis.

Now it seems that word is out. Our offer last year for their 2019 Valmur was met by an avalanche of orders.

We've been blown away by recent vintages. The wines combine honesty, polish, and intensity. Bessin-Tremblay is producing some of the best examples of Chablis that we've tasted. 

Valmur is one of my favorite sites in Chablis. It's energetic, ruthlessly mineral, and incredibly finessed. Along with Raveneau and Moreau-Naudet, Bessin's example makes the greatness of the site very obvious.

Bessin-Tremblay's 2020 Valmur is more than a worthy successor to their brilliant 2019, which was a breakout vintage for this wine. It delivers incredible intensity and verve with outstanding precision. 

This is a dynamite bottle of Grand Cru Chablis. Unfortunately, quantities are very limited. I suggest getting your orders in early.

2020 Bessin, Jean-Claude Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

750 ml


William Kelley, The Wine Advocate: "The 2020 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur is another reference point wine from Bessin, unwinding in the glass with aromas of citrus zest, fresh peach, white flowers, oyster shell, beeswax and blanched almonds. Full-bodied, satiny and layered, with racy acids and a taut, concentrated, impressively chiseled profile, it concludes with a long, iodine-inflected finish."
