If Chablis or any kind of Chardonnay is your thing, then this class is for you! This is a magnificent opportunity to get the inside scoop on Burgundy's most exciting wine region and the glorious, and fantastic value, wines of the Marchive family's Domaine des Malandes.
Amandine Marchive grew up at Domaine des Malandes and has now joined her brother in taking over the Domaine from her mom, the ebullient and courageous Domaine founder, Lyne Marchive. So no one is better placed to tell this exciting estate's story - and the story of modern Chablis in general! - than Amandine. We'll be presenting seven wines:
Dom des Malandes Chablis 2017
Dom des Malandes Chablis Tour du Roy 2017
Dom des Malandes Chablis 1er Cru Montmains 2017
Dom des Malandes Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2017
Dom des Malandes Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu 2017
Dom des Malandes Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir 2016
Dom des Malandes Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2016
For the past four vintages, Chain Bridge Cellars has been your exclusive source in the mid-Atlantic (and one of the few sources anywhere in the USA) for the classic Chablis of Domaine des Malandes. We've tasted through their newest releases - vintage 2017 for Village and 1er Cru and 2016 for Grand Crus - and our verdict is clear: best vintage yet! The wines showcase all of the salty stone minerality you hope for in a great bottle of Chablis, show wonderful detail and precision, and yet have a deep core of green/yellow fruit that makes them all too easy to drink. And the prices are simply sublime.
So round up a group of fellow Chablis-lovers and join us on Wednesday, October 16 at 7pm. Reserve your seats online here or call 703.356.6500 or stop by to see us at the store. We expect this class to sell out quickly - don't delay!
