Pierre Girardin - Meursault 1er Cru "Les Perrières" 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.
"Purchased grapes. Pale lemon colour. Struck match reduction, not too exaggerated. You can see the density of the fruit coming up behind and it is certainly there on the palate along with the intense lime acidity. A promising Perrières." Jasper Morris. 100% Chardonnay.
