Description

As the name implies, this fine steeply sloped parcel (2.4 hectares) of 30-year-old vines is mainly planted on terraces. Hand harvested. Natural yeasts. Alcoholic fermentation finishes in barrel for better oak integration. Malolactic fermentation. 12 months maturation on lees in French oak barriques (15% new). Light filtration at bottling.

Tasting note

The clay-limestone soil gives elegance with fruit. A mineral wine, well-structured and balanced.

About the producer

Domaine Justin Girardin is very much a family affair, with a winemaking heritage that stretches back to the beginning of the 19th century. Jacques (brother of Vincent) handed over the running of the 17ha family domaine to his son Justin in 2012. Whilst not being officially certified, Justin uses many organic techniques, as he is passionate about producing wines that express their terroir. The results are superbly perfumed, multi-layered wines.
