It was in the 1920s that Benoît Besson arrived in Lancié to work the vineyards of his brother, Paul Besson. Domaine du Penlois was a pioneer in the late 1930s, when Benoît Besson introduced the Chardonnay grape variety to a particular hillside in Lancié: le Châtelard (a clay-limestone tumulus). He began to develop a white Beaujolais, as the terroir was highly favorable. Then, in 1977, Maxence Besson (son of André Besson and grandson of Benoît Besson) settled on the estate and began a long period of work with the arrival of the 1st growths. Morgon arrived in the 1980s, Juliénas in the 1990s. Moulin à Vent joined the Penlois range in 2006, and Chénas arrived in 2008.Since 2014, Sébastien Besson (son of Maxence Besson) has continued the family tradition.
