Vincent Girardin Puligny Montrachet Vielles Vignes
"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." (Vinous-10/2021)
Tasting notes from the producer, "The nose suggests fern, hawthorn, ripe grapes, marzipan, hazelnut, amber, lemongrass, green apple. Mineral (flint) and lactic (butter) aromas are frequent. Honey is usual, especially after a few years of keeping. The body and the bouquet melt with age. Concentration is remarkable."
