Winemaker's Notes:

75% Marsannay, all hillside vineyards. 10% Gevrey, 15% Bourgogne old vines, next to Chambolle and Vosne-Romanée. All purchased grapes.

Deeper color; more vinous, with more depth and class. On the nose, smoky and rustic. On the palate, some black licorice and silky acidity. Easy, lush, minty chocolate; has more tannins but they are ripe. Very easy and grapey, very pure and elegant for a Bourgogne.

About Domaine Vincent Girardin:

Vincent Girardin continues the winemaking tradition of his father and grandfather before him, with a significant difference. The energetic and innovative Girardin has greatly expanded the number of appellations in his domaine either through inheritance, purchasing the land, or a system of leasing called "fermage". Vincent concentrates on the lesser-known appellations of the Côte de Beaune, which offer spectacular bargains, but in the past few years has added a stunning array of premier cru and grand cru wines from the most famous appellations in the Côte d'Or.

Until recently, Girardin's cellar was located in Santenay, but now is based in Meursault. Vincent Girardin produces wines from Santenay, Maranges, Chassagne-Montrachet, Meursault, Pommard, Beaune, and Savigny-les-Beaunes. Vincent Girardin's wines exhibit excellent ripe fruit, supple, velvet texture, concentration and vibrancy. The rich fruit and fragrant toasty oak are beautifully balanced, creating elegant and complex Burgundies that will last a decade.
