      Tasting Notes
      Domaine Justin Girardin Savigny Les Beaune les Gollardes, 2017, 75cl

      The Domaine carrying the name 'Girardin' and the associated family has been present in Burgundy since 1570. Justin represents the 13th generation: rich from one know-how and inexhaustible energy, he shows boldness and determination. His experiences outside Burgundy and abroad bring a touch of modernity and creativity in the elaboration of its wines.

      With a single white grape variety, the Chardonnay, and a single red grape the Pinot Noir, careful vinification in Burgundy is essential.
      Therefore it is imperative to be rigorous and meticulous in the vineyards particularly during the pruning, the de-budding or the leaf-thinning. The quality of the grapes is the result of the work undertaken but also of attention to nature and the experience gained over the years. Man must not dominate the plant but accompany it all through its growing cycle.

      Before Philippe le Hardi imposed the Pinot Noir in Burgundy, many grape varieties existed, especially the "Gol" which will eventually give the name of this hillside to Savigny.

      "Light cherry red. Red fruits and a hint of oak spice and wood. Gentle, scented on the palate but well sustained if not intense – but this is burgundy – and the balance is well done. Quite Good value for burgundy."
      16 points.
      (Julia Harding, Jancis Robinson Purple Pages, October 2016 - Commentating on the 2014 vintage)
