En Primeur | Domaine Justin Girardin 2019

Justin Girardin is an enterprising young grower who, though modest and quiet, is steadily working away with gritty determination to elevate Santenay to the heights he believes it deserves. The Girardin family have been established vignerons in Burgundy for centuries. Justin has recently taken up the reins from father Jacques (brother of famous négociant Vincent Girardin) at the family’s 18 hectare domaine in the southern Côte de Beaune. Their holdings stretch from Santenay (where they have 12 hectares) to Savigny lès Beaune, through Chassagne Montrachet and Pommard.

Justin’s wines always have an emphasis on freshness, fruit and elegance. He says the 2019 growing season was fairly straightforward with no particular challenges. In the winery he chose to do no punch downs for his reds during alcoholic fermentation, and for his whites he fermented slowly at a cooler temperature to achieve even greater balance. The 2019s are comparable to the 2010s, he says, as they are rich but have retained a beautiful acidity. It may well be Justin’s favourite vintage in the last ten years!

Please note: due to high demand, online purchases of 2019 Burgundies are limited to 1 case of each wine. For more information please contact your account manager or wine@goedhuis.com

    The Premier Cru Morgeot typically produces a relatively generous style of Chassagne with ample fruit content. This is a fine example with hints of frangipane and toasted brioche. Very good ripeness and high-class finish.

    From a terraced vineyard high up on the Santenay slopes, this is always one of the best value wines in the campaign. The 2019 is very pleasurable, with refreshing hints of quince and honeysuckle. The warmer summer conditions have created a broader style than some years, with a deliciously ripe creamy finish.

    Bright crimson colour, this exudes fresh red cherry. There is a touch of mocha and vanilla on the mid-palate flowing into a succulent sweetness of fruit on the finish. A hugely pleasing wine.
