Domaine Testut – Chablis 1er Cru Foréts 2015
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.”
Hails from the oldest vines on the left bank facing east. Beautiful and mature with notes of acacia honey grape and apricot that complements a long minerality. Suggested food pairings: capon or turbot.
