Sourced primarily from the famous appellations of Chassagne-Montrachet and Meursault, this pretty Bourgogne offers a fairly cool climate rendition of an otherwise warm vintage. Green apple, citrus and hints of herbaceous notes Persistent but moderate acidity, well balanced, with lots of freshness and minerality.

The grapes come from 35 year-old parcels and are fermented and aged in French oak barrels of 5OO liters (no new barrels). Indigenous yeasts, spontaneous fermentation and aging on lees for 10 months, without stirring.

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. The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world and this enabled him to expand his activity across the Côte de Beaune.

In 2012 Vincent Girardin sold his operation to a long-standing partner of the Maison. Mr. Nié, President of the Compagnie des Vins d'Autrefois in Beaune, naturally decided to continue with the small team of 9 people, who had been faithful to the Maison for many years, including head winemaker Eric Germain.
