Tasting notes from the judges of the Sommelier Wine Awards 2020
'The perfect Chablis - creamy with a hint of lemon and crushed oyster shell notes, joined by some green apple and a long, steely finish. A myriad of wonderful flavours, and a perfect match with Thai crab cake.' Emanuel Pesqueira, Edwardian Hotels London. 'This is all I expect from Chablis, with a blend of tropical and citrus fruits, joined by a touch of cream.' Gary Newborough, The Aristologist.
Producer Profile Domaine Testut
The domain was created in 1967 by Philippe Testut, the founder of “Château Grenouille.” In 1998, the 13 hectares of vineyards were taken over by his son, Cyril. Occupying the historic heartland of vineyards initially farmed by Cistercian monks, Domaine Testut and its vineyards lie on some of the finest Kimmeridgian limestone soils. This terroir contributes to the classic, minerally crisp flavours of the wines which have been described by Robert Parker as “among the very best of the region, offering great style and concentration without sacrificing their richness and depth, and while remain extremely well balanced and filled with finesse.”
