    Cuvée presentation

    This wine has a ruby red colour with hints of purple, and it develops a nose marked by notes of blackcurrant, blackberry, and mushroom. On the palate, all the power of the fruit emerges with a tension that balances the overall effect, leading us to a lovely, fresh finish.

    Information about domain Vincent Girardin

    Vincent Girardin comes from a family that has cultivated vines since the 17th century. But the real history of Domaine Vincent Girardin is recent, since it began in 1980 when Vincent Girardin took back the two hectares of vines from his parents (the family have been wine growers since the 17th century) to produce his own wine. He produces wines from environmentally-friendly vineyards (no herbicides or insecticides, natural compost and from local farms, manual harvesting), and in a very natural way. The vineyard now covers 20 hectares, spread over 42 plots, and produces wines from prestigious appellations in the Côte de Beaune (Meursault, Puligny Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet, Saint Aubin, Santenay, Savigny Les Beaune, Aloxe Corton, Volnay and Pommard). Vincent Girardin had taken his Burgundy trading house to the top since it was founded in 1992. Bought by the Compagnie des Vins d'Autrefois in 2012, the technical team however remained the same, led by Eric Germain from Meursault. The selection of winemakers remains demanding, as is the high quality of the wines. The red wines are supple, fruity and elegant, whilst the whites are fine, pure, bold and lively.
