New and exciting: Domaine Jacques Girardin Burgundies

New to our Portfolio

Burgundy at Prices not to be missed!

 

Not long ago I received an email from Domaine Jacques Girardin in Santenay. They were looking for an Australian importer and their well-priced range of wines certainly looked interesting.

 

A carton of samples duly arrived and last Monday a group of us tasted the wines. Not only are the wines keenly priced, but as everyone at the tasting will testify, the quality was uniformly exceptional across the range.

 

So we have a new producer in our portfolio!

 

Girardin Terrasses Label The Girardin family have been vintners since the beginning of the 19th century. Today, the domaine is run by Jacques (who is the brother of Vincent Girardin), his wife Valerie and their son Justin. The domaine own 17 hectares of vines, mostly in Santenay and Savigny-Les-Beaune.

 

Whilst not organic the domaine does utilize many of the techniques. Picking is done by hand, around 10% of stems are used and new oak accounts for no more than 25% of the barrels. The aim is to produce wines that reflect their terroir, which they do admirably.

 

This is one of the most consistent array of wines I have seen from a domaine.

 

Girardin Gollardes Label Our offer features 6 wines. One white and three reds from Santenay and two reds from Savigny-les-Beaune. There is a mix of 2010 and 2011 and as you will see from the tasting notes by Nick Stock and myself the domaine has nailed both vintages.

 

As usual we offer our 15% Pre Arrival Discount. However, for full cases of a single wine we have increased this discount to 20%. So prices start at just $34.36 a bottle for Villages wines and an incredible $38.36 for Premier Crus!

 

To be honest it was hard to pick a clear winner so we also offer a Mixed Dozen comprising two bottles of each. Enjoy the complete range!

 

Domaine Jacques Girardin Burgundy Mixed Dozen

Girardin 6 Wines Normally $562.50

Two bottles of each of the 6 different wines. A great drinking pack full of interest. Click here to read tasting notes on our website.

 

These are delightful wines that provide tremendous drinking pleasure at a very reasonable price. They come highly recommended.
