Vincent Girardin exists today as one of the smaller Burgundy negociant houses, owning 13 hectares of prime vineyards with contracts to buy high-quality fruit from another 85 hectares, many of which they have direct control over. The result is an impressive range of very well made wines from a number of Burgundy’s best villages. Their Bourgogne Blanc is, thanks to Burgundy’s strict vineyard classifications, something of a bargain as the fruit is all sourced from Puligny, Chassagne and Meursault (hence ‘Terroir Noble’) but it can’t be known by any of these famous names. The quality of the fruit however speaks for itself and this is a very elegant, focussed example of Cote de Beaune Chardonnay.
