    Sourced from 50-year-old Pinot Noir vines grown within the commune of Santenay in the southern extremity of the Côte de Beaune, in the legendary Côte-d’Or – the heart of Burgundy, France.  Santenay vineyards are located at an elevation of between 200 and 375 metres and soil variations provide differing Pinot Noir’s, from deep and powerful to those with a more elegant, gentle disposition.

    This wine from Domaine Justin Girardin is classified as Bourgogne Rouge but all grapes are from the village of Santenay.  Domaine Justin Girardin is very much a family affair, with a winemaking heritage that stretches back to the beginning of the 19th century. Jacques (brother of Vincent) handed over the running of the 17ha family domaine to his son Justin in 2012. Whilst not being officially certified, Justin uses many organic techniques, as he is passionate about producing wines that express their terroir. The results are superbly perfumed, multi-layered wines.

    The 2018 Domaine Justin Girardin Bourgogne Rouge is a classic example of a very good red Burgundy.  It is delicately perfumed – think rose petals, peony and violet with flavours of strawberry, earth and liquorice.   A lovely long finish.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
