    Highly aromatic nose combines pineapple, spiced apple, lime oil, nutmeg and mint; essence of Corton-Charlemagne. Thick with extract and wonderfully sweet, with powerful, thoroughly ripe fruit and terrific grip. Exhilarating sugar/acid balance. Youthfully unevolved but not hard. Finishes with superb palate-staining length rare for Corton-Charlemagne in this vintage. Should make an outstanding bottle.

  • 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.
