Producer: Vincent Girardin
Region: Burgundy
Country: France
Type: White

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. This Bourgogne is sourced from Vincent’s own old vines, some in Puligny itself, and some across the road from the village. The grapes were lightly pressed and then cold-settled for twenty-four to thirty-six hours. Fermentation was in barrel, with 30% new, and the wine was matured for ten months while the malolactic completes. The wine was bottled with no fining and minimal filtration. 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. b ourg ogne viei lles
