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.

2017 vintage. The 40 year old vines are located in the regional appellation area of the commune of Beaune. Type Soil : Mainly clay-limestone.After pneumatic pressing the wines are put into barrels (about 30% new wood) where the maturing process takes place. 15 months for this wine, during which time the malolactic fermentation took place. One month before bottling, the wine from the different barrels is assembled in vats. Just a light lenticular filtration before bottling. The bottling is done according to the lunar calendar. The nose reveals notes of undergrowth with subtle hints of cherry. The ample palate is underlined by silky tannins, offering a delicious combination of cherry, blackcurrant and mocha aromas. We note a beautiful freshness on the finish. Pairings: Grilled meat, cold cuts, meat terrine, cheese.

Tasting Note:
