Domaine Garnier et Fils, Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2008

Garnier Clos 2008

Lemon-yellow with golden hints.  Scrupulous compared to the Vaudésir.  A depth of oyster-shell minerality but it doesn’t come at the expense of the fruit.  A textured layering of lychee and nectarine.  Underneath this is diligent and grippy, so the oak shadings here do not dominate the wine.   Ready with a little more upside potential than the Vaudésir.  Now – 2018.
