Description

There is a character very reminiscent of the sea about this wine, like a delicious oyster, with iodine and saline notes, and good viticulture and lower yields help to give the wine great texture and balance.

The brothers planted their vines in 1985 on excellent quality rootstock (3309, strictly no high yielding SO4 which is the most widely planted in Chablis) in Kimmeridgian limestone. The wine has been 100% cuve aged before bottling after one year with high-quality corks and around 50mg/l of total sulphur.

Domaine Garnier is a 23ha estate based in Ligny-le-Châtel, the most northerly commune for producing Chablis. The domaine was founded in 1985 by now retired father Joseph who farmed cereals in the Chablis appellation, and by the time of his final bottling in 1992 had 4.2ha of vines. Eldest son Xavier then took over the reins and was joined in 2000 by younger brother Jérôme. The domaine has gradually expanded to reach its current size, with Xavier in charge of the vines and Jérôme in the cave. Sticking as closely as possible to organic precepts, the domaine concentrates on Petit Chablis and Chablis but had a small offering of Premier Crus.

Vinified in stainless steel and bottled after one year when the wine is ready. Indigenous yeasts are used for the fermentation. Minimal intervention farming.
