About This Wine

Bessin's 2019 Valmur is simply a dynamite Grand Cru Chablis. 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. The 2019 is a breakout vintage for Bessin, and the Valmur is the high point. The wine offers up a beautiful combination of power, clarity, and elegance. Everything is presented with extraordinary balance. It has incredible concentration with a tactile minerality and serious saline imprinted length. The Valmur is sourced in part from very old vines, and they make themselves felt in the wine's gripping intensity.

For many years Bessin has been an insider wine quietly bought by fans of classic Chablis. The 2019 Valmur is such a success that it demands an introduction to a larger audience.
