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

A medium rich, tight and citrus laden Chardonnay, with a lively acidity and crisp, clean, focused style, showing a fine weight of lemon balm, roasted almond, bread yeast and green apple fruit. The minerality is impressive and adds depth, form and structure to the wine.

Food Matches

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.

Vinification

Fermented wholly in steel tanks and aged for 12 months, partly on the lees.
