Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | 90-93

Medium ruby. Superripe aromas of gunflint, game, smoke and earth; less precise and vibrant than the Pommard Rugiens or Grands Epenots. Then sweet, supple and dense, if not yet as explosive or expressive as Girardin wines from Volnay and Pommard. "This is more hermetic," says Girardin, adding that this cuvee is from "cooler" soil. But a wine of noteworthy style and finesse. Finishes with smooth, fine tannins and superb persistence.

Opened and served from bottle. Nose: pure terrior; mushroom, moss, forest floor, dried herbs, and a nice horse-blanket from the barn. Raspberries and blackberry on roses; medium bodied, well balanced, elegant, long. Really good.

About This Producer

Styled by Vincent Girardin, these white wines display their quality in finesse, aromatic purity, and harmony between richness and vibrancy. Girardins red wines are profound and intense, balancing tannin and ripe fruit. Vincent Girardin started in 1982 with just two hectares of vineyards. After assuming responsibility for his father's vineyards and exhibiting uncanny business acumen, he turned Girardin into a flourishing Domaine (owned vineyards) and micro-negociant (purchased fruit) enterprise. The Domaine was originally based in Santenay, but in 2002 Girardin moved the operation to Meursault. This new cuverie is testimony to his dedication to skillfully melding traditional vineyard management with modern, efficient winemaking.
