TASTE
Very vivid aromas of lemon, lime and peach, showing off the depth you get from old vine fruit. The palate is full but steely, very much in the Puligny mould, and offers great length and intensity.

FOOD PAIRING
Pasta, Rich fish (salmon, tuna etc), Shellfish, Mild and soft cheese, Cured Meat

PRODUCER
This dynamic grower-turned-négociant moved from Santenay to large premises in Meursault a few years ago, and quality has moved up a gear with him. Girardin is now doing the opposite of many producers: reducing volume and raising standard. For example, he now refuses to buy from growers who use insecticides or herbicides, part of his own move towards a biodynamic approach.

VINEYARD
This Chardonnay is hand-picked from Vincent’s own forty-year-old vines, in a vineyard called Les Riaux, near Puligny-Montrachet.

WINERY
The grapes were lightly pressed and then cold-settled for twenty-four to thirty-six hours. Fermentation took place in 500-litre barrels, with ten percent new wood, and the wine was matured for eleven months while the malolactic completed. The wine was bottled with no fining and minimal filtration.
