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.
