Wine & Spirits Magazine has given the Marly 2016 a rating of 91 Points! This fantastic rating is also the Year’s Best White Burgundy and a Best Buy. Produced by Domaine Hamelin, the 35-year-old vines yield 12 tons per acre (30 Hl/ hectare) for the Chablis AOC using the sustainable “lutte raisonnée” methods.


“Xavier Flouret works with Thierry Hamelin and his son, Charles, who farm 48 acres of AOC Chablis in Poinchy, Beines and their home base of Lignorelles. It’s a stainless-steel-fermented Chablis with full-on richness, fresh, open and giving in its scents of fleshy apple and leesy smoke. The wine’s crisp acidity holds all that intensity without weight.” – Wine & Spirits Magazine
