Having started with a tiny 3ha back in the 80s, Vincent Girardin now owns 14ha of enviably sited parcels, with another 19ha on lease, and this is practically the first in-house vintage for the Domaine. Head winemaker Eric Germain's steady conversion to biodynamics, earlier picking, reduced usage of new oak and earlier racking into neutral barrels all mean the focus is on terroir expression and energy, and the results in a vintage like 2020 are nothing short of profound. The wines are lithe and vibrant, with marked freshness, yet extra richness and concentration from the 2020 vintage.
Tasting: Lovely tropical notes of pineapple, mango and peach with underlined minerality coming through and allowing the palate to retain its freshness and poise.
