Pierre Girardin - Corton-Charlemagne "La Croix" 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.
These grapes are from the Aloxe side of Corton-Charlemagne with the parcel located next to the famed cross of Corton Charlemagne, 70+ year old vines. This Grand Cru showcases the grandeur of Corton Charlemagne's terroir, offering a remarkable balance of richness and finesse. 100% Chardonnay.
