Brand Pierre Girardin

This incredible wine shows beautifully with ethereal aromas of wild strawberries, red currants, and ripe sour cherries. A vein of minerality keeps the wine fresh and alive, while adding complexity to the wine’s sappy and textured frame. Very true to a Vosne-Romanée style. The wine is farmed organically and the grapes are sourced from three Lieux-dits in Vosne-Romanée which are La Croixe Blanche, Lutenière, and Les Chassagnes.  All of the vines are 30+ year old. 

We have met Pierre's dad over the years but have yet to meet his son who is developing a great reputation for making classic Burgundy. Pierre-Vincent Girardin is the 13th generation of his family to make wine in Burgundy. He grew up learning in the cellar of his father, Vincent Girardin, from a very young age. When the elder Girardin sold his domaine in 2011, he made sure to keep 4.5 hectares of his best sites to one day pass on to his son. In 2017, Pierre-Vincent made his first vintage and announced himself as a rising talent in Burgundy. His father’s extensive contacts in Burgundy allowed Pierre-Vincent to supplement his domaine vineyards through long term contracts with top growers who hold his meticulous viticultural philosophy. Together it represents a portfolio of terroir rarely seen under one roof, including such rare sites as village-level Puligny Folatières (Lalou Bize-Leroy bottles the only other parcel from this section of Folatières), Volnay Clos des Chênes, Pommard Epenots, Corton-Charlemagne, and even Montrachet itself. In order to make white wines with the purity, cut and precision he desires, Pierre-Vincent commissioned custom 456L barrels from Francois Freres to reduce the amount of new wood influence. For the reds, they are all made with an eye towards elegance and silkiness, highlighting the extraordinary terroir Pierre is working with. This means a long and gentle press followed by little to no pigeage and bottling unfined and unfiltered. In the many years Skurnik has worked with some of the top talents in Burgundy, it is rare for a producer’s first vintage to arrive with such a clear and definitive voice. As Pierre explains, he was learning from and helping his father in the cellar from the time he could walk. His best memories of childhood include chasing the tractor through the vineyards and being near the barrels as his father worked. Simply put, Burgundy is in his blood.
