Pierre Girardin Bourgogne Blanc Éclat de Calcaire 2020
From two plots in Meursault and Volnay, this exceptional Bourgogne Blanc unwinds with white peach, wet limestone and wild flowers. Amazing energy and density to its citrus flavors, finishing with a clean saline minerality.
Pierre-Vincent Girardin is the 13th generation of his family to make wine in Burgundy. He grew up learning in the cellar of his father, Vincent Girardin, from a very young age. When the elder Girardin sold his domaine in 2011, he made sure to keep 4.5 hectares of his best sites to one day pass on to his son. In 2017, Pierre-Vincent made his first vintage and announced himself as a rising talent in Burgundy. His father’s extensive contacts in Burgundy allowed Pierre-Vincent to supplement his domaine vineyards through long term contracts with top growers who hold his meticulous viticultural philosophy.
