SKU: B292 / 7299Regular price $64.95
A 13th generation of vignerons in Burgundy, Pierre-Vincent Girardin grew up learning in the cellar of his father, Vincent Girardin.
In 2017, Pierre-Vincent made his first vintage from 4.5 hectares inherited from his father, supplemented by long term contracts vineyards with top growers, including such rare sites as village-level Puligny Folatières (Lalou Bize-Leroy bottles the only other parcel from this section), Volnay Clos des Chênes, Pommard Epenots, Corton-Charlemagne, and even Montrachet itself. To reduce the amount of new wood influence, he uses 456L barrels, to deliver white wines with the purity, cut and precision.
