Girardin Santenay Blanc Clos de Tavannes 2012 
Characteristics: 100% Chardonnay | The 55 year old vines of Chardonnay are located in the Santenay Village area, in the south of the Côte de Beaune. The "Clos de Tavannes” vineyard is just near the famous 1er Cru Les Gravières and on the boarder with the village of Chassagne. While predominantly clay and limestone, the subsoil is composed of different limestone layers (pebbles, marly soils). The slope is quite strong.


The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. The grapes are wholly pressed in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a cold settling and gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks (15% of new oak) of 500 liters named "demi-muids”. The primary and malolactic fermentations can then begin with wild yeasts. The ageing is long on fine lies during 14 months. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and gently filtered before bottling it following the lunar calendar ("fruit” day to get a wine on freshness and minerality).

Dry and full-bodied, this is a fleshy white wine with notes of dried and preserved fruits and
honey combined with a nice acidity level which brings a nice balance and a good mineral length.

Girardin Santenay Blanc Clos de Tavannes 2010 
Characteristics: Biodynamic | In the south of the Cote d'Or, north of Gravieres in Santenay and just south of Chassagne-Montrachet rests the Premier Cru Clos de Tavannes from which Vincent Girardin crafts this exceptional Chardonnay rich in the lifted scents of tangerines and grounding apricots. In the mouth one can practically taste the mineral from low yielding vines planted to clay marl soils that set this parcel apart in a flinty character that could well define dry extract. Nervy acids and a rounded texture prove twelve months in barrel helped tame this racy Chardonnay into a polished and creamy white of orchard fruit, freshly chopped fennel, and an almost Chablisienne sort of cut and punch together with the sapid charms of Chassagne-Montrachet. A wine that turns you on your heel and smiles "look at me and adore me" in a way one cannot but help.
Wine review by Nicholas Livingston, April 2013

From 55 years old vines located in the Santenay Village area, in the south of the Côte de Beaune. The "Clos de Tavannes” vineyard is just near the famous 1er Cru Les Gravières and on the boarder with the village of Chassagne. The soils here are comprised of clay and limestone. The subsoil is composed of different limestone layers (pebbles, marly soils). The slope is quite strong. This is naturally 100% Chardonnay pruned Guyot and harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. After whole pressing, cold settling and gentle racking, the wine is put in French oak casks (15% of new oak) of 500 liters named "demi-muids”. The primary and malolactic fermentations can then begin with wild yeasts.

The ageing is long on fine lies during 14 months. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and gently filtered before bottling it following the lunar calendar ("fruit” day to get a wine on freshness and minerality).

The whites are dry and full-bodied. A fleshy wine with notes of dried and preserved fruits and honey combined with a nice acidity level which brings a nice balance and a good mineral length.

Girardin Savigny-les-Beaune Serpentieres 2015 
Characteristics: Vincent Girardin 2009 Savigny-les-Beaune Serpentières, Côte de Beaune | 13.5% | Delicious wine from 50 year old vines of Pinot Noir on the Premier Cru climat of Les Serpentières. The village of Savigny-les-Beaune is located in the Côte de Beaune, a couple miles north of the village of Beaune. The wine area of Savigny-les-Beaune is one of the oldest of Burgundy and a lot of parcels belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy and to the Abbeys of Citeaux and Maizières. "Les Serpentières" is located at the opposite of the Marconnets' plot and here the soil are chalky with stones and gravels a bit of clay. In 228 liter French oak barrels of which 15% are new, malolactic fermentation takes place and the wine is then aged 14 months, and then bottled without fining or filtration following the moon calendar. A wine with plenty of fruit with well integrated structure, this is full and round, very long and charming start to finish. In terms of food pairings, this is versatile but for starters think starters, pâtés, white and red meat.

Marchesi Pancrazi Pinot Noir villa Bagnolo 2010 
Characteristics: Pinot Noir Villa di Bagnolo Toscana IGT: 100% Pinot Nero almost exclusively from Burgundian clones. The vineyards are south-facing, and the microclimate is cool and well ventilated, with significant temperature variance between daytime and nighttime. Altitude is moderate, 0-492 feet a.s.l., favoring grape maturation. The soil is shaly and clayey, volcanic in origin (Monte Ferrato is an extinct volcano) and particularly rich in iron, which is instrumental to Pinot Noir complexity. Water supplies in the Bagnolo area are abundant throughout the year and the soil itself has high levels of humidity; these are crucial factors for the variety, which is especially sensitive to drought. The wine is aged one year in French oak barriques followed by one year of bottle aging. Small crops and cru characteristics endow the wine with superb intensity, purple color, remarkable fruit aromas reminiscent of blackberries & plums, also mint nuances, coffee, licorice & vanilla; round, soft, luscious & lingering on the palate.

Mongeard Mugneret Savigny-les-Beaune 2017 
Characteristics: The soil of Savigny-lès-Beaune is ideally suited to growing vines and is also comparatively deep. The wines from this village are moderately intense in colour.
They have an elegant, fairly powerful bouquet, dominated by Morello cherries, blackcurrants, raspberries, modulating over the years towards strawberries and hints of woodland undergrowth. Subtle, with discreet tannins, and a low acid content, they have a light, open structure which gives them a feminine image. Perfumed and mellow, they have a rich bouquet. They have fire and strength, but above all it is their exquisite delicacy and finesse which makes them so appreciated by wine-lovers.
