Jean-Christophe Garnier Bezigon Chenin 2017 12% (750ml)-Hop Burns & Black

Jean-Christophe Garnier Bezigon Chenin 2017 12% (750ml)

by J C Garnier

Baked apple - Fresh - Almond

Garnier’s is a no-frills operation. He uses an old apple press, taking 2-3 days to extract all the juice from his berries, and after fermentation, ages the wine in large oak foudres for one year (hence the oxidative, bruised apple and almond aromas). He starts with organically cultivated grapes picked at maximum maturity, giving the wine a honeyed, baked apple aspect. There’s some volatile acidity there too, giving it a fresh finish, but not at the expense of the fruit. Pair it with a fatty, rich plate like Anjou pork rillettes, and you’ve got just the tonic for a dank February evening.

Pair with: Grilled chicken, pork rillettes, charcuterie

Grapes: Chenin blanc
