Tasting Notes

This vineyard plot, Le Limouzin, is planted in clay and limestone soils. The grapes are fermented with native yeasts and then aged in French oak barrels (15% new) for 16 months before bottling. An intense and aromatic white Burgundy you could enjoy with a beef carpaccio.

Staff Pick Notes

Vincent Girardin's humble beginnings started in Santenay where he began producing wines with vines he had inherited from his parents, aiming to show the potential and unique character they possessed. Today, Eric Germain carries on the production in the style that Vincent so wished to present. Le Limouzin is a relatively young parcel in the commune of Meursault but it shows incredible promise.
