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.
Produced from South East facing vineyards, situated to the south-west of the village of Chablis, this is an impressive, well constructed wine. It is always one of our favourite 1er Cru Chablis that always benefits from a little ageing. Tight and taut with a delightful crispness, there is plenty of rich and creamy fruits with a touch of almond on the finish.
This wine is great with white meats. Also works well with duck, pork, lamb, salmon; the simpler their cooking, the better! When it comes to pasta, Chardonnay likes creamy sauces, and/or with seafood.
