TASTING NOTES

Tree nuts, Citrus, Kaffir Lime, chamomile, chalky and saline minerality with a soft round palate and fresh, zippy acidy that keep this wine classic and balanced.

The soils are chalky-clay on top of Kimmeridgien with an average vine age of 15-30 years. Fermentation in tank is done with natural and indigenous yeast in separate vats. Maturation on the lees in stainless steel tanks for 12 months before bottling. 100% Malolactic conversion. Fined and filtered.

Based in Ligny-le-Châtel, the Garnier family own 57 acres along the slopes edging the valley of the Serein river. Truly a family affair, father Joseph first farmed the land of cows and grains in the late 70’s before planting the first vineyard with son Xavier in 1985. Brother Jérome came on board shortly after and while their father sold the grapes, the two brothers began making their own wine, selling it to restaurants in and around Paris. Construction of the cellar began in 1992 thru 2009. Organically farmed and with minimal intervention in both the vineyard and cellar, the brothers harvest later than most to get the right expression of the fruit. Fermenting with natural yeast and ageing the wines in very large barrels, this exciting estate is achieving greatness with its Chablis.

Vegan and organically farmed.
