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
La Maladière is a large southeast-facing premier cru in the very heart of the Santenay commune. The grapes for this wine are hand-harvested from vines averaging thirty-five years old, grown on marl-limestone soil.

WINERY
The grapes went through a selection process on entering the winery, then were crushed, totally destemmed and transferred to the tanks. After a period of cold maceration, the wine began fermenting, with pumping over and punch-downs used for extractration. The cap was gently pressed afterwards to give a blending component. The wine was transferred to oak barrels, of which forty percent were new, where it was aged for eighteen months, then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
