Domaine Testut 2018 'Montee de Tonnerre' 1er Cru Chablis, Burgundy, France

Since 1998, Cyril Testut has presided over the family estate, which was established by his father Philippe Testut in 1967. 

Winemaker: Cyril Testut 

Farming: Sustainable

Variety: 100% Chardonnay

Terroir: 60+ years Marls and calcareous clay from the Kimmeridgien period

Vinification:  Hand harvested and fermented with indigenous yeasts in 95% in stainless  steel and 5% in wood. Temperature is controlled through fermentation in  steel but not in wood. Malolactic fermentation is completed.

Aging: 12 to 18 months in barrel

Tasting Notes: This medium bodied Chablis captures a richer, more concentrated side of the Montée de Tonnerre vineyard. Bruised yellow apple skins and bosc pear and supported by electric acidity driven by lemon zest and hints of white flower. The finish is intensely mineral, with wet chalk notes rounded by whisps of toasted almond, lent from time in barrel.
