The Wine

 Vines planted in 1953.

94 Points Wine Enthusiast: Whiffs of flinty, smoky reduction on the nose of this wine air out nicely to reveal sun-streaked tones of yellow cherry, Mirabelle and tangerine. Fruity yet anchored firmly by steel and salt, the wine should drink at peak from 2023 through 2035 and hold further still.

90-93 Points Burghound - Outstanding:  Restrained aromas of iodine, green apple and citrus is trimmed in a dollop of wood toast. There is excellent intensity to the saline and delineated middle weight flavors on the chiseled, clean and sneaky long finish. Drink 2027+

About the Wine Maker

Commenting on the 2021 Vintage : As I wrote last year, Richard Rottiers, whose Beaujolais wines readers will find reviewed in these pages later this month, presides over the renaissance of Domaine des Malandes. This once somewhat neglected estate has been converted to organic farming, with all the work it entails; a massale selection program for Chardonnay has been launched, and winemaking has been refined, with cuvées now matured in used 500-liter oak barrels that make their presence felt much more discreetly. As I remarked to Rottiers, the rate of improvement at this address has surpassed anything I thought possible, and this is now clearly an estate to watch closely

Domaine des Malandes, nestled in the heart of Chablis, is a renowned winemaker with a rich heritage spanning three generations. Established in 1982, this family-owned estate boasts 29 hectares of meticulously tended vineyards dedicated to outstanding Chardonnay cultivation. With a commitment to sustainable farming practices, Domaine des Malandes produces approximately 200,000 bottles annually, including an impressive range of Premier Cru and Grand Cru Chablis wines. Their dedication to preserving the authentic terroir of the region, combined with modern winemaking techniques, has earned them a well-deserved reputation for crafting exceptional and expressive Chablis wines. The Domaine is currently owned and operated by Richard Rottiers, who has taken this estate to a new level with the introduction of organics and only replanting with massale selection Chardonnay. Year after year, these wines have been making huge increases in quality, with 2022 being one of their most outstanding vintages yet. EFW
