Domaine Testut

We have worked closely with Cyril Testut for many years now. Quiet, considered and deeply passionate about his 13ha domaine, he is the proprietor of one of the real jewels of the Chablis region that sites in the top echelons of the Chablis hierarchy. His Chablis vineyards are perfectly situated - squeezed between the Grand Cru Blanchot and the 1er Cru of Montée de Tonnerre. It is arguably the finest Chablis AC vineyard in the region. The small parcel of the famous Grand Cru Grenouilles returned to the Testut family only a few years ago. Back in 1970’s the vineyards were leased, due to internal family squabbles, and were held by William Fèvre for 30 years. It is now back in the hands of one of Chablis’ finest domaines.
Lemon/green, limpid colour, a fresh, attractive nose, layered with green apple, white peach and a chalky, earthy quality that adds structure and balance. The wine is taut and alive in the mouth, showing great energy and backbone, power and elegance; steely throughout, it finishes with great length and poise.
Enjoy with herb marinated grilled sea bass on a bed of green beans.
