Deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is earthy, meaty, reserved and slightly shy showing bresaola notes, dried mushroom and dried herb touches. The palate is full and firm, rich and dense and loaded with fleshy extract, bold plummy and dark-cherry fruit flavour that is concentrated and long-lasting. A superb wine, with a big future ahead of it. Drink 2022 – 2038

The grapes come from the vineyards from the village of Santenay in the Côte de Beaune, where Vincent Girardin is born. This is a historic wine and flag one from the Maison Vincent Girardin. Soil : Clay and mostly limestone. Gentle slope. Despite the fact the vineyards are in the south of the Côte de Beaune, we can easily compare them with the terroirs of Gevrey Chambertin in the Côte de Nuits because we have the same soil typology (Jurrassic rock from the quaternary period). 100% pinot noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).
