1er Cru Santenay Les Gravieres Girardin, 100% Pinot Noir, Classic smooth, soft earthy Pinot. The Girardin name is synonymous with Burgundy. The wines are approachable, clean, smooth and very easy to understand and drink. The Santenay 'Gravieres', one of the 12 'climat' which are designated as premiere cru in Santenay has typically soft berry fruit, warming texture, notes of farmyard and layers of flavour. Very classic Pinot Noir for devotees of this grape.

Domaine Vincent Girardin is no longer owned by the man himself and since this small to medium sized negociant was sold to Jean-Pierre Nie, the owner of the Compagnie des Vins d'Autrefois in Beaune, the wines have gone from strength to strength and now offer more precision and finesse than previously shown under head wine maker Eric Germain. With 90 hectares of vines in contracts and a further 10 hectares of their own vines, they are far smaller than is often imagined. Their wines remain absolutely delicious, accessible, examples which speak, clearly, of their individual terroir and taste like great Chardonnay and Pinot Noir without too much fuss.
