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 of 40-70 year-old vines. This wine is grown on clay and limestone on 40-year-old vines.
