This Pommard has a vivid red fruit character with hints of spice and liquorice, lifted acidity, and a long, mineral finish.
100% Pinot Noir
Pierre Girardin, son of Vincent Girardin, is the 13th generation of his family to make wine in Burgundy. Pierre spent a significant part of his childhood in his family’s vineyards and cellar, both helping and learning from his father. Vincent sold the family domaine and négociant business in 2011 but kept 4.5 hectares of his best sites, primarily in Meursault, Pommard and Volnay, to pass onto his son.
Fruit for the Pommard 2017 is sourced from two parcels, ‘Les Cras’ and ‘La Chanière’, from vines of around 60 years of age.
