About

Making waves in Burgundy since his first vintage at the age of 21, Pierre-Vincent Girardin is a formidable force with 13 generations of winemaking knowledge to back him up. With just 4.5 hectares to begin his label, he now has access to renowned parcels across Burgundy to bring out impressive and age-worthy wines.

Pierre-Vincent Girardin, a 13th generation Burgundian winemaker, grew up among the vines in his father’s Domaine learning the family traditions from a very young age. Enamoured by the world of winemaking, his father, Vincent Girardin, made sure to hold onto a select few parcels when Domaine Vincent Girardin was sold in 2012. Les Folatières in Puligny-Montrachet, the parcel from which Pierre learnt all his viticulture knowledge sits close to his heart. These 4.5 hectares of vines became the platform for Pierre-Vincent to spring off and bring his own label to fruition in 2017 at the young age of 21. The family contacts brought him access to top growers that share his philosophies in the vineyard, expanding his reach of terroirs including Pommard "Rugiens", Pommard "Grand Epenots", Vosne-Romanée "Les Suchots", Corton-Charlemagne, as well as Grand Cru Montrachet.

Focused on his organic viticulture he produces his wines made from grapes from his own estate as well as an enviable portfolio of parcels. The vineyards in Pommard and Vosne-Romanée, which Pierre-Vincent contracts grapes from, is where he is also completely looking after the vines, as if they were his own. These compliment beautifully his other great winesfrom Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet.

Working with the Lunar calendar he has begun bringing in biodynamic practices to his estate, along with unique concepts of raising trellises rather than pruning leaves off his vines (to encourage photosynthesis without clipping the vines). Commissioning custom barrels of 456L from Tonnellerie François Frères, Pierre-Vincent hones his Chardonnays into a distinct Pierre Girardin style by reducing the new wood influence. He highlights the terroir to a T in his reds by performing little to no pigeage after a long and gentle press. With no filtration or fining after ageing in traditional Burgundy barrels, he allows every drinker to enjoy the raw elements of Burgundy in every pour. - Importer Note
