"The 2015 Chablis Villages did not show well last year, so I was glad to revisit this blind at the BIVB tasting. It has a pretty, peach and apricot-scented bouquet that bursts from the glass, all with fine delineation and focus. The palate is well balanced with a fine thread of acidity, quite malic with plenty of Granny Smith apples and grassy notes, the finish perhaps just a little simple but showing decent length." (WA)

Winery Notes:
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 the grapes, 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 itsChablis, which offers a delicate salinity that reflects the vineyard’s unique soil profile. Their wines include a Chablis Village, which is a lovely entry-level bottle, as well as 1er Cru and Grand Cru.

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, crunchy acidity.
