(the blend has now changed from exclusively Pernand vines to a mix of all 3 communes) Green apple, wood spice and brown butter notes introduce incredibly intense, huge and very ripe flavors that drive though to an explosive and palate staining finish. This is a big wine carrying plenty of wood yet there is a good chance that it will successfully integrate it with a few years in bottle as there is terrific dry extract here.

($101; according to Girardin, all these '04s were racked without air at the end of August, 2005, then returned to used barrels with their lees until they were assembled in tank for three weeks prior to being bottled in March of 2006, fined but not filtered) Pale yellow. Aromas of mirabelle, nutmeg, candied ginger, and spicy, vanillin oak. Tight, taut and penetrating, with a powerful structure and very firm acidity suggesting that this grand cru will need at least five to seven years of aging. The '05 version is much easier and sweeter in comparison, but this is chewy, powerful and gripping, not to mention elegant. Finishes very long, with notes of mint and wet stone.

1. Full and rich. Lively and nerveux. Maybe Les Combettes is even better value? But it tastes of Corton-Charlemagne. Correct, rather than exciting, on the nose. Though there is very good depth of flavour. Very full and quite expressive. Slightly Marks & Spencer version.

Shows fine intensity, layering lemon, mineral and spice flavors from the initial attack to the finish. Deep and long, with all the components in harmony, yet needs time to fully realize its potential. The long finish is the best part.

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.
