"Domaine des Malandes"

Domaine des Malandes is a family estate, combining traditional winemaking with the best modern equipment. The care and respect brought to the vinification process and also to the various locations of our plots contribute largely to the finesse of our wines, resulting in high quality wines which achieve many International awards. All our Chabliscan be perfectly matched to any kind of seafood, grilled fish, pork, poultry or in a delicate sauce.  

I am a member of a well established Chablis wine family, the Tremblays, and have run my own wine estate since 1972. Presently I am in charge of the Domaine and employ a young winemaker, Guénolé Breteaudeau, who joined me in 2006.

CLASSIC WINES

Our approach, in both the vineyard and the cellar is to respect the environment, to produce wines of quality and typicity. Our wines are appreciated for their freshness, their elegance and their minerality, which comes directly from the famous kimmeridgian sub-soil, unique to the vineyards of Chablis.

THE VINES AND VINIFICATION

Chablis has the good fortune of possessing a unique type of soil called Kimmeridgian which give the wines their mineral and vibrant flavour. Domaine des Malandes' main objective is to minimise intervention allowing the fruit and the soil to express themselves. Therefore our team at the Domaine controls the vine's foliage and fruit, and effectively uses integrated pest management. So when harvest time arrives, the grapes reach optimal maturities and qualities.

In the cellar, a lot of care is taken with vinification. Guénolé Breteaudeau's purpose in winemaking is to allow the fruit to assert their own distinct characteristics to reflect the terroir and climate of Chablis.

Lyne Marchive.
