Of the '18: "The 2018 Pouilly Fuissé Les Vieilles Vignes offers light tropical scents of passion fruit and pineapple on the nose, quite energetic and nicely defined even if it is not the most mineral-driven Pouilly Fuissé that you will ever find. The palate is well balanced with a creamy opening, modest weight with vanilla pod and almond lining the sweet, somewhat commercial finish."

This wine is raised in 500-litre oak barrels for ten months, plus two in stainless steel, has bright lifted apple and lemon aromas. The palate is well-balanced with crisp citrus and a bright fresh finish. This is really a delightful Pouilly Fuisse!


Vincent Girardin is a highly regarded Burgundy domaine based in Meursault. It makes a wide range of wines from both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay although the latter predominates. Most holdings span the Côte de Beaune, from grand cru sites such as Le Montrachet and Corton-Charlemagne, through premiers crus in Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin and Santenay, all the way down to vineyards at village-level and regional appellations.

The domaine has around 22 hectares (54 acres) of owned vineyards and also acts as a négoce, buying in fruit from growers who can adhere to a certain code of practice, which includes things like using higher trellising for better photosynthesis and avoiding the use of herbicides and insecticides.

In the winery, the grapes undergo fermentations using indigenous yeasts, followed by long maturation on the fine lees. Vincent Girarden does not use a high proportion of new oak to mature its wines.
