"A hint of aromatic raspberry accompanies the more obvious red-cherry notes on the nose of this wine. The palate brims with freshness and has juicy crunchness at its cherry core. The wine is fresh-faced, honest but also firm, which is evident in the structured finish."
Vinous Reverie Notes
The Girardin name has been synonymous with elite level Burgundy for 700 years, most recently through the wines of Justin’s uncle, Vincent Girardin, and his father, Jacques Girardin. With the provenance of this family’s holdings and the talent seemingly entrenched in this bloodline, Justin is more than a name to watch – He is without question one of the most exciting young names in the region, farming 17 hectares of vines in Pommard, Chassagne Montrachet, and Savigny-les-Beaune using organic and biodynamic practices. Only native yeast is used here, and it is rare to experience the influence of new oak in any of Justin’s bottlings. The family believes in clonal diversity as both a way to preserve culture and a way to increase complexity of finished wines.
