Domaine Garnier & Fils, Epineuil Pinot Noir, 2017, Burgundy, Chablis, France
£25.80 (inc VAT)
Xavier and Jérôme make Chablis. They make this for themselves. We stole some for you.
Xavier and Jérôme make eight wines. Only one is red. They nailed it first time. The Pinot Noir grapes for this wine comes from a vineyard a bit smaller than Trafalgar Square, which is farmed using no herbicides or insecticides. Fermented with natural yeast and aged in seasoned oak for 12 months, this should probably cost twice as much as it does.
Domaine Garnier et Fils is a family run estate managed by the two brothers Xavier and Jérôme Garnier based in the village of Ligny-le-Châtel on the slopes of the Serein Valley in Chablis. The Domaine is focused on organic principles with no use of herbicides or insecticides in the vineyard and native yeast for fermentation.
