Moderately saturated ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black plum, mocha, chocolate, spices, game and earth, with a whiff of menthol. Plump and sweet but a bit unrefined and austere; this needs further elevage to gain in definition. Most promising today on the sweet, juicy, oak-spicy finish, where the solid tannins arrive late.

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.
