We’re loving the 2009 Petit Chablis from Domaine des Marronniers, paired with my new Wu Tang album! Unoaked Chardonnay from the North end of the Burgundy region, winemaker Bernard Legland thanks the natural terroir for the wine’s racy acidity and bracing minerality. “Why would we want to hide what we get from our soil?”, he exclaims! We agree, whole heartedly.
A French website we translated with the help of Google says:
Marie-Claude Bernard and Legland settled in 1976 in Préhy, south of the appellation. Leading today twenty hectares, they offer a small-windfall from vines fifteen years, a perfect typicality. Behind the pale gold color, the nose opens into the flower and fruit. An elegant minerality underlines the mouth rich, full and fruity, long and narrow. To drink without waiting until the fun is already there.
Huh, how about that.
