About the Wine
Critic Reviews
A-, VinePair
“Your nose will thank you with aromas of seasoned meat and mushrooms simmering with cherries. The wine opens a bit and shows off its fresh plowed earth with a whisper of green tea and tobacco leaf. On the finish there is a hint of sweet wood from good oak and the palate is soft, edged with new tannin that still wants to do some work reducing (aging). This is a nice, deep, and soulful bottle from Beaune.”

About The Winery
The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is relatively recent. In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers based in Santenay since the 17th century, decided to strike out on his own and began producing wine from five acres of vines that he had inherited from his parents. From his earliest youth, Vincent had a passion for working with vines and great respect for the potential that they represent, and his ambition was to produce his own wine. The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world, and this enabled him to expand his activity, focusing primarily on the great white and red wines of the Côte de Beaune. To cope with the growing demand for his wines, he developed an approach that was new in Burgundy: he purchased grapes from producers who shared the same philosophy and the same high standards. In 2012, Vincent Girardin sold his operation to a long-standing partner of the Maison. Jean-Pierre Nié, President of the Compagnie des Vins d'Autrefois in Beaune, naturally decided to continue with the small team of nine people that had been faithful to the Maison for many years. Today, Eric Germain continues to uphold the style of the wines, and Marco Caschera markets them all over the world.
