The terroirs are important, as Pierre-Vincent Girardin is a man of terroir. He wants his wines to express the mineral side of Burgundy rather than producing overly concentrated and dense wines.
The style is very much geared to expressing the terroir, and trying to find the sweet spot where the vineyard is showing its best mineral side and balance
The rare combination of youthful talent, suppression of the human ego in deference to terroir, and minimal intervention is a joy to witness in the inaugural releases from Domaine Pierre Girardin. The subtleties of fine Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a package of elegance and purity is on full display in these gorgeous 2017s.
