THE REVIEW

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); it’s 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, it’s 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.Read More »
