THE COMPANY

Vincent Girardin was born in 1961 in Santenay, he is part of a family of winemakers who began in the seventeenth century and represents the eleventh generation. IIt started out on its own in 1982 with only 2 hectares of vineyards, to which he added a few plots when his father withdrew from the business and could therefore devote himself fully to the vine. In 2012 Vincent decides to sell his business to the company de Vins d’Autrefois whose president Jean Pierre Nié has entrusted in the company since 2000, Eric Germain, the technical part and Marco Caschera, the commercial management. Girardin’s philosophy is linked to the territory, so first work in the vineyard to allow micro-oxygenation, then manual harvesting to preserve the bunches intact and the use of modern technology only to extract the maximum from the grapes in order to obtain elegance in scents and strength in taste. All its wines stand out for their minerality, especially the Corton-Charlemagne, an extraordinary interpreter of the terroir of Burgundy. Great elegance in Meursault and Puligny where the smallest differences in soil are perfectly represented in the different bottles: a great all-round interpreter of Burgundy.
