Vincent Girardin, Rully Blanc 1er Cru Grésigny

£35.84
The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is relatively recent. In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers based in Santenay since the 17th century, decided to strike out on his own, and began producing wine from two hectares of vines that he had inherited from his parents. From his earliest youth Vincent had a passion for working with vines, and great respect for the potential that they represent; his ambition was to produce his own wine. The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world, and this enabled him to expand his activity, focusing primarily on the great white and red wines of the Côte de Beaune.

Barreling after a slight settling. The grapes are put in French oak barrels of 500 litres (10 % of new barrels). Breeding will be long on fine lees for 15 months. Without stirring. Bright green gold colour. The nose shows aromas of fresh fruit (apple, pear), citrus and white flowers. The ageing in barrels gives discreet vanilla notes. Very full, rich in the mouth, full of sap and vigour. Pairings: fine cold meats and fish marinated or cooked in butter.
