Estate Notes

Annick Tinel-Blondelet  has over 400 years of winemaking in her family. She took over the Estate from her parents, Camille & Fernand, in 1983, and now represents the 12th generation of winegrowers in the family, working the estate with her sister Agnès.  

Situated beside the old Roman road above the east bank of the Loire river, Tinel-Blondelet’s vineyards are sited on slopes of Kimmeridgian marl as found in the best vineyards of Chablis. The estate has been classified with the highest of the three available certifications for environmental status, has wonderful soils, which impart the world-renowned mineral nuances and complexity to their wines, while great fruit concentration is derived from the optimal ripeness of the grapes grown on the 35-year old vines that bask on the south-facing slopes.

Annick is driven by the desire to preserve the typicity of the wines, producing authentic wines of real character, class, and expression, reflective of their origins. 

Reviews

Reserved but intense fresh citrus, gooseberry and apple fruit aromas with floral high notes and smoky minerality beneath. Fine balance and backbone of acidity giving good keeping potential, with concentrated depth, broad development, and long interplay of fruit, acidity and minerality in the finish.
