  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($95) Good dark red. Dark cherry and raspberry lifted by spices and stone. Juicy, bright and penetrating, with a distinct delicacy for the year. Dark cherry flavor complicated by spices, minerals and licorice. Firmly structured wine, and tougher today than the Epenots. Girardin finds most of these 2005s to be quite closed on the nose at present.

    Fairly strong reduction can't completely hide the sauvage, indeed outright gamy character of the nose and this strong meat and feral quality continues onto the rich, full, serious and utterly delicious flavors that possess the best depth of this trio of Cortons as there is really lovely balance and energy on the long finale.

  • 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.
