Domaine des Marronniers

Laurent and Marie-Noëlle Ternynck acquired this lovely domaine from Bernard Legland in 2013. They have invested well and strive for perfection each vintage by expressing the traditional soils of Chablis. The only change in winemaking is the move to using wild yeasts during the fermentation process, thereby elevating the terroir character of Chablis in the wine. This is a super little domaine that produces wines of great typicity.

Tasting Notes

Produced from 10 different parcels from vines of between 25-30 year old. Pale yellow in appearance with green hints. Intense on the nose, with floral and mineral aromas and notes of almonds, fresh nuts, citrus fruit and white flowers. On the palate, the wine is fresh and balanced, the minerality beautifully complemented by wonderful white peach flavours. The wine can be kept for between 4 and 8 years, perhaps even a little longer.

Food Matches

Enjoy with beetroot cured smoked salmon. A perfect match also for oysters.
