    Cuvée presentation

    This Santenay Premier Cru comes from the Les Gravières climat, from the Vincent Girardin estate. Located south of the Côte de Beaune, “Les Gravières” is the best Premier Cru of Santenay. The steeply sloping terroir is clay limestone with 45-year-old vines.
    After manual harvesting and a rigorous sorting process, the grapes are partially destemmed and put into thermoregulated vats. Natural yeasts take effect during the alcoholic fermentation which lasts for 3 weeks. Gentle racking is carried out and the pressing is equally gentle. Maturation lasts for 14 months and is carried out on fine lees in oak barrels (20% of which are new). The wine is neither filtered not fined.
    To taste, it is a well-structured, balanced wine. The aromas are floral and packed full of red and black fruits. It has a lingering finish with smooth tannins. To be served at 16°C, accompanied by red meat, game or cheese.

    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.
