Girardin Bourgogne Blanc Cuvee Saint-Vincent 2015 Product #32613 (In Stock)
Girardin Bourgogne Blanc Cuvee Saint-Vincent 2015 Girardin Bourgogne Blanc Cuvee Saint-Vincent 2015

An estate once known for oaky, fat, wines has poured on the elegance, focus and finesse over the past decade - without sacrificing generosity and deliciousness.  One taste of the 2015 Bourgogne Blanc will certainly give you a fine idea of what to expect from the "big boy" wines. Better:  it will give you a great, all-purpose, Burgundy Chardonnay you'll love drinking solo and with a broad range of foods now - 2021.

Much of this wine comes from declassified lots of Chassagne-Montrachet and Meursault, all hand harvested, meticulously sorted, and gently fermented and aged in 500 liter barrels with no new oak.  Generous orchard fruits - peach, pear, and green apple - are framed by notes of toasted hazelnut, fresh butter, and just a hint of mint.  There's a creaminess to the texture, with fine definition and delineation, and a long, fruit-filled, finish.  Delicious and a great value in today's crazy expensive Burgundy market!

Girardin Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravieres 2014 Product #32621 (In Stock)
Girardin Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravieres 2014 Girardin Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravieres 2014

Vincent Girardin was born in Santenay, so it's not surprising that this wine from the best 1er cru site in the village gets extra special attention.  "Gravieres" means "gravel," and while the name comes from the stones mixed with the poor soils, you'll certainly taste a gravel-like minerality here, too.  Pure red fruit, soy, balsamic, earth and still more fruit show on the nose and palate.  The smokey, stony, gravel notes pervade the long palate and generous finish, too.  Good tension between ripe fruit, minerality, and juicy acidity here in a wine that's ready to enjoy now and better in 3-5 years.

Girardin Santennay 1er Cru Clos De Tavanne 2015 Product #32616 (In Stock)
Girardin Santennay 1er Cru Clos De Tavanne 2015 Girardin Santennay 1er Cru Clos De Tavanne 2015

Not originally slated to come to Virginia, but one taste at the Domaine in March led us to demand an allocation!  It's small, but well worth grabbing a Chardonnay that delivers extraordinary value for money. Clos de Tavannes is an extension of the vineyard that made Vincent Girardin famous, Les Gravieres, but with more limestone and less clay.  Fermented and aged in 500 liter dimi-muids (15% new), this develops plenty of creamy richenss but no overt oak flavor.

A big step up from the Bourgogne Blanc in terms of concentration, richness and class, this delivers bold aromas and flavors of stone fruit, yellow apple, toasted hazelnut, fresh mint, and tangy cultured butter.  Still a bit youthfully tight on first opening, the wine flowers to reveal fine depth and richness and a long, chalky, finish.  Delicious and highly recommended.

Girardin Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2015 Product #32614 (In Stock)
Girardin Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2015 Girardin Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2015

Very limited, very grand.  Needs 10 years then watch out!

"Aromas of white peach, marzipan, hazelnut and spicy, smoky oak. Silky, thick and deep, with very ripe candied yellow fruit flavors complicated by suggestions of hydrocarbons, flint and pepper. A rather rectilinear wine with a very long, lightly tannic honey-and-nuts finish and superb potential."  Vinous (Tanzer) 92 points
