Pierre Girardin - Pommard 1er Cru "Les Rugiens Bas" 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, as well as Grand Cru Montrachet.
"From below, purchased grapes. Bright mid perfume. At first a ripe and slightly blocky nose, then the peony and rose notes plus some fresh raspberry. Extra density, but actually too much sweet red fruit and not so obviously Rugiens in character. Very good acidity behind." Jasper Morris. 100% Pinot Noir.
