Vincent Girardin

Pouilly-Fuisse

Les Vieilles Vignes

Burgundy, France

Varietal(s):
100% Chardonnay

Tasting Notes:

You will fall in love with Girardin's Pouilly-Fuisse. So much so, you will likely lick the glass clean and be sad when it's gone. Pebble, clay and limestone soil make a Chardonnay that is crisp and vibrant, yet creamy. Delicate and distinguished this delicious Chardonnay reveals harmonious aromas with notes of hazelnut, toasted almond and lemon zest. From seafood, to foul and even as an aperitif, this white Burgundy is, simply put, delicious!

Vincent Girardin, Pouilly-Fuisse
Springtime Burgundy Beauty

— LIMITED QUANTITIES —

($27.95 per bot / $335.40 per case) There is no dancing around it; this wine is simply delicious. In fact, it is so good that I wanted to lick the glass once it was gone (and truth be told, may actually have). I can personally say that this is the kind of wine that makes you sad when the bottle is empty.
    I like nothing more than a crisp and creamy white Burgundy for sitting out on my porch and watching the sky change from gold to red. A warm breeze, spring songbirds, flowers and Girardin's Pouilly-Fuisse are the sights, sounds and flavors of my spring months. When Girardin is not helping me enjoy these perfect days, it can be seen pairing well with almost anything on my table. I recommend that you try this Chardonnay with oysters or a lemon roasted bird (of any kind); itís lovely subtle citrus-cream, stone fruits and mineral composition will make both foods pop.
    If you are not familiar with the wines of Vincent Girardin, itís a shame. His wines are on par with the likes of Comte-Lafon and Domaine Leflaive. Their beauty, power and elegance speak for themselves. A single bottle of his Bienvenue Batard Montrachet literally transformed everything I thought a wine could be and his Pouilly-Fuisse has transformed what I think every wine should be: elegant, deep, pretty, refreshing, and affordable.
