Pierre Girardin, Bourgogne Blanc `Éclat de Calcaire`
The 'Éclat de Calcaire` has precise notes of fresh citrus fruit, white flowers and fresh pastry on the nose. On the palate, bright acidity gives the wine great energy and freshness. It is well-balanced, elegant and poised and is excellent value for a Bourgogne Blanc.
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 on to his son. The family’s widespread contacts throughout the Côte d’Or have enabled Pierre to supplement his domaine sites with long-term contracts with top growers. Pierre completed his first vintage aged 21 years old.
Pierre has sought out interesting and often overlooked parcels over the past few years, particularly in the Côte de Beaune. He searches for growers who share the same viticultural philosophy and either already farm organically or are moving towards certification. His interest lies in how best to express the characters of individual sites with purity and precision, and for this reason he vinifies on a ‘micro-cuvée’ scale. Although Pierre has primarily learnt winemaking from his father, he is full of new ideas and techniques, which he has put into practice in his newly built winery in Meursault.
Pierre practises low-intervention winemaking, using indigenous yeasts to help capture the purity of each site.
