Vincent Girardin - Cuvee Saint-Vincent - Chardonnay - 2020


Burgundy, France

The grapes come from parcels located in the regional appellation area on the Côte de Beaune. Soil : Clay and limestone. Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches). Manual harvest, sorting on vine then in the vat and finally pressing (pneumatic press) to obtain a slow extraction. Barreling after a slight settling. The grapes are put in French oak barrels of 5OO liters (no new barrels) in which the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in yeasts and native bacteria will take place. Breeding will be long on fine lees for 10 months. Without stirring. One month before bottling, the wine from different barrels is placed in a stainless steel tank for blending. Then follows a light bonding and light filtration before bottling. Bottling is done according to the lunar calendar. Aromatic wine with fruity, floral notes and a lot of delicacies in the mouth. Lots of freshness and minerality. For the aperitif, with cold meats and cheeses, on shellfish and with raw vegetables. Serving temperature : 12 °C
