Pierre Girardin Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 2020
This extremely rare plot of village-level Folatières sits directly in the middle of the famed Premier Cru Folatières. It boasts a harmonious and detailed bouquet with blood orange, mint, and orange blossom. The bright acidity is perfectly balanced with impressive body and grip. This is quite a powerful Puligny with a deeply satisfying and seemingly unending finish.
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.
