Domaine Besson Givry Les Grands Prétans 2012




The combination of old vines, conscientious vineyard work, and reasonable yields, all contribute to the crowd pleasing, balanced wines that Besson produces. Farming from superb vineyards like 'Les Grands Prétans,' Besson always provides superb Burgundy value: concentrated and densely expressive with brilliant perfume, heady fruit, and a velvety mouthfeel.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Givry 1er Cru Les Grands Pretans has a straightforward nose with slightly dusty red berry fruit that would benefit from more vigor. The palate is better with pinched, slightly shrill, tart cherries and it finishes in rather rudimentary, primal fashion. Drink now-2017.
