The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is relatively recent. In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers based in Santenay since the 17th century, decided to strike out on his own, and began producing wine from two hectares of vines that he had inherited from his parents. From his earliest youth Vincent had a passion for working with vines, and great respect for the potential that they represent; his ambition was to produce his own wine. The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world, and this enabled him to expand his activity, focusing primarily on the great white and red wines of the Côte de Beaune.

45 year old south facing vines, this plot is located on white marl very stony. Barreling after a slight settling. The grapes are put in French oak barrels of 5OO litres (15 % of new barrels) in which the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in yeasts and native bacteria will take place. Breeding will be long on fine lees for 15 months. Without stirring. One month before bottling, the wine from different barrels is placed in a stainless steel tank for blending. Then follows a light bonding and light filtration before bottling. Bottling is done according to the lunar calendar. A nose of hawthorn, with a lemon shade and the pomme de reinette with enough acidity to age well. A wine generally fond, sweet, but not heavy. Pairings: Terrine, quenelles, cheeses (bleu, livarot, époisses).

Tasting Note:
A nose of hawthorn, with a lemon shade and the pomme de reinette with enough acidity to age well.
