We love Madame Aleth Girardin's wines just the way they are. Unadulterated, ripe and lush, these are the most feminine and juicy Pommards you are ever likely to taste. As far back as her family can be traced, they have been making wine in Pommard — too many generations to count. Average vine age here is 60+ years - the parcels of Epenots and Rugiens were planted in 1906!
Cool but ripe dark berry suffused nose that is actually quite refined for what it is and leads to solidly rich and attractively textured middle weight flavors that are balanced and complex. There is also a subtle trace of minerality present that adds to the lift on the finish.
"I have long been an admirer and collector of the wines of Aleth Girardin since the 1990 vintage and bought quite a number of her stunning ‘93s. Her wines have been absent from the US market however for some years. This is the kind of domaine that will appeal greatly to Burghound readers, and I encourage you to take a close look."
