From: Burgundy, France
Taste: The nose begins with roasted almonds and hazelnuts, mingling with vegetal and flowers. Hawthorn, elderberry, fern, linden, and verbena notes follow, while a mineral undertone of flint adds a compelling depth with subtle hints of butter, honey, and citrus fruits. As the wine opens, it unfurls layers of hazelnut, white flowers, butter, and toasted bread nuances. A delicate touch of sugar indicates the fruit's optimum maturity, enhancing the wine's complexity.
Pairing: This white Burgundy, ideally chilled to a crisp 53 °F, compliments the creaminess of blue cheeses and the richness of foie gras. Its nuances complement the soft textures of veal and poultry, particularly when bathed in a velvety white sauce and has an affinity for grilled seafood.

About: Born into a family of winegrowers in Santenay, Vincent Girardin's journey began in 1980. At 19, he embarked on an ambitious path with two hectares of inherited vines. His early passion for viticulture and respect for the vine's potential quickly led to global recognition, allowing him to focus on producing exceptional white and red wines from the Côte de Beaune.
The essence of Maison Vincent Girardin's wines lies in the profound respect for the Burgundian terroirs. Adopting sustainable agriculture principles and a commitment to natural vinification processes are essential. Deep plowing, using natural composts, and manual harvesting are just a few practices that underline the Maison's philosophy. Winemaker Eric Germain, who joined Girardin in the early 2000s, has been pivotal in refining this approach, focusing on the terroir's expression through minimal intervention and indigenous yeast fermentation.
Germain, a disciple of Girardin's philosophy, embodies the Maison's relentless pursuit of quality. His intimate knowledge of each vine and plot ensures that every bottle reflects the uniqueness of its hillside origin. Under his guidance, the Maison's wines have evolved to showcase the finesse, aromatic purity, and balanced elegance defining Burgundy's best terroirs.
The 2019 Meursault Les Vieilles Vignes, sourced from 50-year-old vines located in the commune of Meursault, this wine is a blend of diverse terroirs, each contributing its distinct character. The meticulous vinification process, involving manual harvest and slow extraction, is followed by a careful 15-month maturation in French oak barrels.
