The StoryThe Girardin family has been making wine in Burgundy since 1570. Justin is the 13th generation as head of the 17 hectare family estate, from Santenay to Savigny-les-Beaune. Well aware of the exceptional character of the terroirs, he puts his know-how at the service of the vines to make the best wines every year. The vines for this Pinot Noir are 45 years old, and reveal a delicate complexity that makes it an excellent value.

Why You'll Love Me: There is a prettiness to a somewhat wild nose, which is marked with black pepper and an earthy aroma. The palate is full of pungent cranberry and blackcurrant with traces of laurel and cinnamon. A medium body reveals markedly ripe tannins on a moderately long, persistent finish.
