Domaine Testut

The Domain and vineyards are located in the historic heart of the vineyards traditionally defined by the Cistercian monks. Highly developed root system of vines from Testut Domain draw deep richness of the soil mineral iodine which has led to the great reputation of this Chablis wine.

Tasting Notes

The bouquet is flowery and elegant with only a slight whiff of oak that will integrate over time. The palate is rich yet elegant with a classic steeliness that gives the wine an impressive rigidity. Fabulous.

Food Matches

Try with sauteed frogs legs with garlic butter.
