About the Wine

The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is relatively recent. In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers based in Santenay since the 17th century, decided to strike out on his own, and began producing wine from two hectares of vines that he had inherited from his parents.

   From his earliest youth Vincent had a passion for working with vines, and great respect for the potential that they represent; his ambition was to produce his own wine.

The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world, and this enabled him to expand his activity, focusing primarily on the great white and red wines of the Côte de Beaune.

The quality of Maison Girardin depends on the technical choices made by the winegrower.

For some years now Maison Vincent Girardin has upheld its "Très Haute Couture" code of winegrowing practices: organics, biodynamics, deep ploughing of the vineyards and the use of natural composts to enrich the native soil biodiversity.
Success in this task requires rigour and vigilance from the winegrower at all times, and in the context of each wine, because every bottle reflects a hillside, and its specific terroir.
Like the Vincent Girardin Grands Vins de Bourgogne, the white wines' quality stems from their finesse and superb aromatic purity, from a balance of richness and smoothness with freshness and liveliness.

Tasting Notes:
Aromas of pear and yellow orchard fruit mingle with notes of white flowers, mint, wet stones and blanched almonds to introduce the 2021 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières, a full-bodied, tangy and electric wine that's rich and concentrated, with racy acids and a long, palate-staining finish. It's a terrific wine that saw extensive frost protection.
