Vincent Girardin continues the winemaking tradition of his father and grandfather before him. Aromas of crisp stone fruits with citrus notes, complex. On the palate apple and citrus flavors, lively with honey and spice. Well balanced, lingering finish ending with mineral tones. Nice! Put this in the cellar for a few years.

Great form but probably for not much longer, as the fruit is turning slightly nutty. Acidity still propping up complex flavor notes at this point. 2005 strikes again.

Bright acidity dominates the fruit and wood notes at this time. Needs years for this solid effort in a tough vintage

An uninteresting oaky overly unctuous wine thats quite out of balance.

Exceptionally rich and viscous. Balanced but showing off its curves well with a fruit forward palate and reduced acid. A warm climate chard drinkers gateway to Burgundy? Candied pear, pineapple cake, marshmallow, struck flint, brioche dough, damp mushrooms. You could argue that it's not classic but very pleasurable to drink

Med concentration with a deep straw core and clear rim. A young nose with med + intensity and complexity. The orchard fruit was slightly underripe. The structure on the palate was taught with high acid and the complexity was med being driven by sweet corn, and reminding me of high quality #chile #chardonnay Needs a couple years to come together. #vincentgirardin #meursault #cotedebeaune #burgundy #ctbucklinwine

2014. Lemon meringue pie served on stone. Luscious fruit balanced by wiry acid. Makes me crave melted butter and ocean meats.

Definitely some California characteristics. Med + concentration with a yellow core. Med + intensity and complexity showing power and ripeness. Corn, vanilla, ripe orchard fruit, chervil, cotton candy, hay, spices, and caramel. The palate had a firm structure with med + acid and abv showing great tension with some bitterness. The complexity was med + but wound up and compact. The balance seemed a little disjointed and the finish a bit awkward. Needs some time to come together. #vincentgirardin #meursault #chardonnay #cotedebeaune #burgundy #ctbucklinwine
