V. Girardin - Santenay Old Vines 2017 - Burgundy
The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is quite recent. In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, from a wine-growing family in Santenay since the 17th century, wanted to fly on his own and started with the two hectares of vines inherited from his parents.
From his tender youth, Vincent was always passionate about the work of the vine to which he has great respect, and wanted this vine to produce his own wine.
Very quickly, the quality of its wines was recognized worldwide and enabled it to expand its business by focusing mainly on the great whites and reds of the Côte de Beaune.
