Brothers Xavier and Jérôme Garnier share a passion for wine and the Chablis region, where their family has owned a 57-acre estate for many decades. While their father sold grapes to negoçiants, the brothers began making their own wine in 1996, selling it to restaurants in and around Paris. Garnier & Fils uses traditional, environmentally friendly, organic practices; they harvest later than most, ferment with natural yeast and age the wines in very large barrels. Improving every year, this exciting estate is already achieving greatness with its Chablis, which offers a delicate salinity that reflects the vineyard's unique soil profile. Jérôme works the vineyards, and Xavier makes the wines. Together, they are leading a group of newer producers finding their voice in the northernmost part of Chablis. They recognize it takes much more work to produce high-quality wines in such a cool region. They are also proving the extra effort is well worth it, as the soft-spoken brothers go above and beyond to create beautifully balanced wines, with amazing ripeness, freshness and minerality, boasting a lush mouth feel and texture, as well as a bright, textured acidity.
Golden yellow colour and fragrant notes of flowering linden, this wine invites you to a sensory journey. On the palate, ripe apricot flavours unfold, accompanied by a gentle touch of honey. The saline finish hints at its aging potential, promising complexity in the years to come.
"We have chosen to create a cuvee as we felt it should be made. Going outside the boundaries of a classical vinification, this cuvee from the Côte de Charmoy terroir, has had 30 months of maturation before being bottled. Alternating between Barrels and tanks, the wine was lightly stirred in order to extract the best lees character" Xavier and Jérôme Garnier
