TASTE
Sumptuous, fruit-driven Volnay offering elegant red cherry and strawberry aromas, a supple medium-bodied palate, and balance and complexity throughout.

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
Les Santenots straddles the border between Volnay and Meursault, taking the former’s name for red wine and the latter’s for white. The soil is marl-limestone with red clay. The vines average thirty-five years old, and their yield limited to 40hl/ha. The grapes are harvested by hand.

WINERY
The grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed, given a period of cold maceration, then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged for eighteen months in barriques, with fifty percent new wood.
