Pierre Girardin - Meursault "Les Narvaux" 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 0.25ha in the upper part of Narvaux. Pale lemon colour. The nose is tight and fine, the wine on the palate is excellent, with a concentration of white fruit with a lemon and lime tingle behind. Good length too. A balance of concentration and mineral zest." Jasper Morris. 100% Chardonnay.
