Domaine Besson, Chablis, 2021, Burgundy, France

Producer Profile

Situated in the heart of Chablis, Domaine Besson is the proud owner of an exceptional wine-producing heritage, seeking to express and transmit in its wines the purity and sensitivity of this unique terroir. The estate is an independent family-owned and run Domaine spanning four generations.

Today, their 21 hectares comprises holdings in Petit Chablis, Chablis and selected Premiers/Grands Crus. Alain Besson has handed more control to his daughter Camille, who looks after the winemaking and marketing, along with his son Adrien who is responsible for the vineyard work. Practicing ‘lutte raisonnée’ in the vineyards and manual harvesting (for the Grands Crus only), their thoughtful, sensitive winemaking gives rise to wines that offer a pure expression of fruit in a fine and elegant styling.


Adrien Besson, passionate about tractors since his childhood, obtained his professional baccalaureate in viticulture and oenology and then returned to take care of the vines in June 2013. Accompanied by four  employees, he takes care of our vines throughout the year in order to produce quality grapes. Anxious to rationalize his practices, he set up the ploughing of our entire plot, limiting chemical weeding.

He also instituted the leaf stripping of our wines, allowing natural ventilation of each vine stock and contributing to the reduction of contamination by pests. Since 2015, his faithful dog Lissa has accompanied him during all the work in the vineyard.
