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 Bourgogne comes from eight hectares of forty-five year old vineyards around Volnay and Pommard, in the heart of the Côte de Beaune. The soil is clay-limestone and the yields limited to 40hl/ha. The grapes are harvested by hand.

Winery

After a double selection, the grapes were partially destemmed and fermented with natural yeast in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Sixty percent of the wine was racked to tank, and forty percent to barrel, with ten percent new wood, for malolactic and fourteen months’ ageing.
