Domaine de la Mandeliere
A very expressive nose with a perfume of summer flowers, citrus and orchard fruits like apple and pear. A distinctive salty sensation compels the minerality and palate. Medium-bodied with fortitude and persistence in the finish.
POINTS OF INTEREST
Chablis is a unique place because vineyard classification is more closely tied to the geology and soil than in any other region in France. The main substrate is Jurassic limestone, called Kimmeridgian, from over 150 million years ago. The rock contains deposits of tiny, fossilized oyster shells which remind us that Burgundy once lay beneath a warm ocean.
