  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($111) Bright ruby-red. Wild berries, plum and smoked meat on the nose. Sweet, supple and gamey, but given shape and verve by juicy acidity. Nicely dense wine whose finish shows a dryness that probably comes from the recent sulfur addition.

    A seductive, exotic red, bursting with wild berry, cassis and licorice notes. It's supple and seamless, with brightness and subtle tannins on the finish. Good freshness, though I would like just a little more grip.

    The 2003 Echezeaux displays red cherry and violet aromas. Seductively sensual in the attack and mid-palate, it is medium to full-bodied, filled with blackberries and dark cherries, then reveals a slightly dry, tannin-packed finish. Armed with a low 90-point front-end and a mid 80-point back-end, only time will tell where this wine is heading.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

    Smoke, spice and very ripe, even slightly jammy red and black berry aromas framed by a touch of toast merge into rich, supple and sweet medium full flavors that culminate in a chewy and persistent finish blessed with good power. This too will require a few years to unwind.

  • 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.
