Vincent Girardin Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Clos du Cailleret 2013
An exquisite Montrachet from one of the most prestigious vineyards in the region
From his earliest youth Vincent Girardin had a passion for working with vines, and great respect for the potential that they represent; his ambition was to produce his own wine.
The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world, and this enabled him to expand his activity, focusing primarily on the great white and red wines of the Côte de Beaune.
Having worked side by side with Vincent Girardin for more than ten years winemaker Eric Germain has made it his mission to reveal the prestigious, complex terroirs of the Côte de Beaune: the mosaic of Grands Vins and Grands Crus that radiate around Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet.
Eric knows every vine and every plot. In this way he has perfect control over the production of his wines and can ensure the best possible quality, through a profound respect for these terroirs that are the key to Burgundy's reputation.
It is this personal touch, this blending of generosity, balance and elegance, that places the Grands Vins produced by Maison Vincent Girardin among the region's finest.
A perfumed nose with a hint of minerality and citrus fruits, in particular lemon. There is a floral and nuttiness that carries on into the palate with subtle notes of peaches and apple. The finish is long and succulent. Drinking excellently now with the ability to age further.
