Pierre Girardin Bourgogne Blanc Eclat de Calcaire 2017
Practicing organic, this killer Bourgogne Chardonnay is sourced 80% from Meursault and 20% from Volnay, 35+ year old vines, indigenous yeast, élevage in 60% 456L barrels (15% new) and 30% in tank.
Importer notes: 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. In order to make white wines with the purity, cut and precision he desires, Pierre-Vincent commissioned custom 456L barrels from Francois Freres to reduce the amount of new wood influence.
