VINCENT GIRARDIN CORTON-CHARLEMAGNE 2017, Burgundy
Availability: In stock
Vincent Girardin was born in Santenay, in the Cote de Beaune and is part of a winemaking family with roots back to the 17th century. His white wines display their quality in finesse, their aromatic purety, and the harmony between richness and vibrancy. The grapes are harvested by hand, then sorted twice, once in the vineyard and for a second time in the winery. The sorting process eliminates all elements that are not fully ripe or not in the best condition. The presses are pneumatic in order to preserve the purety of the grapes. Next the wines are aged in oak barrels. This carefully controlled ageing process allows the wines to achieve their full potential. A very classy, distinguished nose with earthy butterscotch, which carries over onto the palate. Signature butterscotch and passion fruit, along with butternut squash, lemon cream and meringue. A good mix of fruit and acidity, a little bit restrained, but finishes with a smoky sense of jasmine.
