This Santenay Vieilles Vignes Blanc asserts itself as an indispensable element of the selection, fresh and full of vivacity.

The vines, flourishing in a clay-limestone soil, lend this wine a brilliant clarity and a character that is both mineral and floral. This Santenay Vieilles Vignes, made entirely from Chardonnay, unveils complex aromas that subtly blend notes of white flowers, almonds, and a touch of minerality. Its delicate minerality makes it the perfect pairing for poultry and soft cheeses.

The Estate and the Vineyard

The viticultural tradition of the GIRARDIN family dates back 13 generations, with the estate thriving in the 1960s under the initiative of Jean GIRARDIN, who notably acquired the Château de la Charrière. Growing up amidst the vines and in the cellar, Yves developed a passion for the art of winemaking. In 1981, the family estate of 12 hectares was divided, leaving Yves in charge of a 3-hectare operation. Seeking to broaden horizons and diversify the range of appellations, he invested in vineyards in Chassagne-Montrachet and Pommard, thereby expanding the total area to 21.50 hectares. In 2003, Yves acquired the Château de la Charrière, a long-standing property in the family, and expanded operations with the construction of a new cellar. In 2011, Benoît returned to the estate after studying in Beaune and Bordeaux, with the aim of perpetuating the family heritage and expertise.

Vinification is carried out manually, with careful observation and management of vegetation allowing for minimal use of products. Only French oak barrels are used in the aging process.
