Pierre Girardin - Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Folatières" 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.
"A domaine holding of 0.29ha. Pale primrose, the reduction holds back the nose a touch. Very lean and intense, but with extra density behind compared to Enseignères. This will need more elevage and is slightly hard to judge at the moment." Jasper Morris. 100% Chardonnay.
