Volnay Vieilles Vignes, Vincent Girardin, Burgundy, France 2016
Regular price £53.80
This dynamic grower-turned-négociant moved from Santenay to large premises in Meursault a few years ago, and quality has moved up a gear with him. Girardin is now doing the opposite of many producers: reducing volume and raising standard. For example, he now refuses to buy from growers who use insecticides or herbicides, part of his own move towards a biodynamic approach.
Volnay Vieilles Vignes 2016
Expressive, delicate Volnay with notes of violet and forest fruits. The palate is silky and refined, with mineral elegance on the finish
