    I'm really loving the 2016s from Chablis, and this lovely offering from Domaine Besson is a perfect example of why. Fresh, clean, bright acidity, and the perfect touch of chalky minerality are all in play—just as they should be. What makes this 2016 extra special is its ripeness—it is less towards the lemon and green apple end of the Chablis spectrum, and more toward Anjou pear and melon. It is lush through the front and middle, but ends with a wonderful crispness. For the price, this is a really solid bottle of white Burgundy. Besson has crafted a wine that's delicious straight out of the gate, but will also age quite nicely for another five to ten years.

    What a beautiful Chablis for under $25! Loaded with savory notes as well as aromas of seashells, iodine and white flower. Orchard fruits and citrus notes dominate the palate as the wine seamlessly flows to a fresh and zesty finish. The perfect Chablis for entertaining or seafood that easily outperforms Chablis' twice the price.

    Hard to imagine Chablis that can be more alluring and complex at this price point! Powerful and deep, absolutely dry and wonderfully mineral, Besson has everything you like about Chablis. Citrus fruit, green apple and lots of mineral notes reminiscent of sea and seashells are singing and zinging on the nose and on the palate, creating bright and fresh flavor profile and long juicy finish. Great Chablis for hosting your holiday party or just enjoying it with Dungeness crab and oysters.
