Vinous Reverie Notes
An award-winning vintner, Philippe Girard has won many medals and honors for his wines, particularly his premiers crus. He now works with his son, Arnaud, to create wines that gain complexity and character with age. He is the latest in a lineage of over 5 centuries of vintners, Philippe Girard follows in the family’s traditions, but gives his wines a livelier, younger twist. The domaine is small - only 25 acres - and the vineyards spread over 6 towns in both the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits. Its holdings include premier crus from Savigny-les-Beaune and this grand cru from Corton Perrieres. Soil is limestone, rich in marl with a high potash content. Tasting Notes: This wine displays a pretty red velvet robe. Ample its bouquet expresses itself on fruity accents (blueberries, currant). On the palate, it is powerful and structured. Food Pairing: It goes very well with intense cheeses and meats, such as a piece of beef and all feathered game.
