Pierre Girardin, Meursault 'Les Narvaux' 2019Regular price $95.00 Save $-95.00
It’s rare that a Burgundy winemaker has success on just their first vintage, but Pierre Girardin has defied all odds. Even with the first, there was a distinctive voice to the wines not often seen so early in a winemaker’s career. Working in the cellar almost from the time he could walk, he is now the 13th generation of his family making wine. Even though Girardin senior sold the domain in 2011, he kept 4.5 hectares of his best plots to pass on to Pierre. Beyond the domain wines, Pierre continues to purchase from growers who share the same views.
Narvaux is a vineyard in the village of Meursault; this fruit comes from the highest altitude part at 300+ meters in altitude. Vines are 25+ years in age; barrel ageing is done over one year in 40% new barrels and six months in steel before release.
