2019 Vincent Girardin Bourgogne Blanc "Cuvée St. Vincent"
The Bourgogne Blanc “Cuvée Saint Vincent” is a white Burgundy wine made from Chardonnay grapes. It has a bright straw yellow colour and expresses notess of citrus peel, ripe mirabelle plums and pineapple, with nuances of cream and dried fruit. The mouthfeel it is rich, refreshing, and smooth with good strong acidity.
The cuvée Saint Vincent from Domaine Vincent Girardin comes from vineyards over 35 years old located on the Côte de Beaune. These Chardonnay are bred 10 months in oak casks, the harvest is manual, a careful work that gives us a very nice insight into the skills of this field.
Neal Martin writes in Vinous: "Girardin is often misconceived as a négoce operation, when in reality, they own over 30 hectares of vines, accumulated in recent years and farmed biodynamically. I was impressed by the quality of both the whites and reds here."
