Bourgogne Blanc, Chardonnay Vieilles Vignes


The Girardin family was based in santenay, In the Cote de Beaune, for three Centuries until Vincent Girardin, dynamic grower-turned-négociant moved from Santenay to large premises in Meursault a few years ago, and quality has moved up a gear with him. Girardin is now doing the opposite of many producers: reducing volume and raising standard. For example, he now refuses to buy from growers who use insecticides or herbicides, part of his own move towards a biodynamic approach.

This Chardonnay is hand-picked from Vincent’s own forty-year-old vines, in a vineyard called Les Riaux, near
