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

With an average age of 20 years, these vines give a ripe and forward green apple fruit and tight, crisp, steely structure, balanced in the mouth by notes of peach, baked apple and a nice chalky minerality. Fermented in tank over an extended 2-5 months, this is as good as many domaines’ Chablis AC.

Vinification

Fermented in stainless steel tanks.
