Pierre Girardin - Bourgogne Chardonnay 2021
Pierre-Vincent Girardin is a 13th generation Burgundian winemaker who grew up among the vines in his father’s Domaine. Starting his own label with the family holdings of Les Folatières in Puligny-Montrachet at the age of 21, he has become a formidable force among young winemakers in Burgundy. Expanding beyond the 4.5 hectares, his family contacts brought him access to top growers in Puligny Folatières, Volnay Clos des Chênes, Pommard Epenots, Corton-Charlemagne.
"A domaine holding of 2ha located mostly below Meursault, Magny and Herbeux, plus Volnay Monpoulain on a stony outcrop. Light yellow colour, some modern-style reduction to the nose, significant fruit weight, well done. Some lime notes at the back." - Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy. 100% Chardonnay.
