(the blend has now changed from exclusively Pernand vines to a mix of all 3 communes) An expressive nose of green apple and lightly spiced pear introduces round, minerally and moderately intense flavors that possess obvious minerality though here the finish is edgy to the point of being intrusive and while it may round out with time in bottle, at the moment the lemony acid bite is aggressive. My score offers the benefit of the doubt. On the plus side, there is excellent persistence.

($152) Full yellow with a golden tinge. Exotic aromas of apricot, honey, vanilla and nutty oak, with suggestions of dried fruits. Big, round and rich; very ripe and thick for Corton-Charlemagne and a bit unrefined in comparison to Girardin's 2007 grand crus. But there's also excellent energy and lift and a very long finish.

Girardin has the luxury of fielding two bottlings of 2006 Corton Charlemagne. This first hails from lower-elevation parcels in all three communes that share this grand cru. Lemon, lime, and overt stone and chalk dominate the nose and palate here, and the sheer finishing refreshment of citrus helps ward off the hint of warmth and keep the mineral cast from rendering this impressively-concentrated wine too austere. Still, this will demand some patience, and should cellar well for at least 6-8 years.

Intense aromas of lemon verbena, mineral and spice are followed by lemon, peach and stone flavors. Young and racy, with fine intensity that builds on the palate. This has terrific energy, along with a dry, flinty feel on the finish. 350 cases imported.

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.
