Just 15 hectares of some of the region’s finest terroir provide the grapes for Lyne Marchive’s deliciously mineral Chablis. Which means she can give every vine the closest possible care and attention. And boy, can you taste the difference it makes.
As with all the most respected Chablis whites, Domaine des Malandes ferments its wines in stainless steel, maximising regional character and freshness
Although quantities were way down for the 2017 vintage – frost, again, being a thorn in the Chablis winemaker’s side – quality was sky high. “If you like classic Chablis these wines remain Burgundian bargains” says Tim Atkin MW
Domaine des Malandes is one of our favourite Chablis producers. As Allen Meadows of Burghound writes: “readers who are not familiar with the wines owe it to themselves to try a few bottles”
Tasting note: Crisp, classic Chablis minerality, with twists of seashell among crunchy green apple and fresh, pure grapefruit. An absolute must with a seafood platter.
