WineScores' Review

Domaine des Malandes was established by Lyne Marchive in 1973 with 7-hectares of vineyards handed down from her parents. She grew the vineyard holdings over the following decades and passed on the reigns to her children in 2018. Today the 29-hectares of organic Domaine des Malandes vineyards are located in Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru (including this Vau de Vey, Fourchaume, Cote de Lechet among others) and in the Grand Cru of Vaudesir and Les Clos.
This 2017 Vau de Vey 1er Cru shows precision and classic Chablis bones. Crunchy yellow fruits, oyster shell, grille, marmalade and burnt honey aromas lead to a slick palate with savoury flavours of wet stone/minerality, lemon, toasted hazelnuts and vague salinity. Excellent structure and length, this is an outstanding example of a left bank premier cru.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
