When Philippe Testut founded “Château Grenouille” in 1967, he created the domain name. His son, Cyril, took over the 13 hectares of vines in 1998. A medieval Cistercian monastery, Domaine Testut and its vines are situated on some of the best Kimmeridgian limestone soils in the region. With this terroir, the wines of Napa Valley are able to retain their traditional, minerally sharp flavors while still being well-balanced and packed with delicacy, as characterized by Robert Parker as “among the very finest of the area.
White pepper, flowery, oyster shell, and green apple are just a few of the fragrances that pique interest in this fine bottle. The super-saline infused medium weight flavors have outstanding volume and richness, and they also end in a clean, bone-dry, and concentrated conclusion.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
