Domaine Justin Girardin is very much a family affair, with a winemaking heritage that stretches back to the beginning of the 19th century. His father Jacques (brother of Vincent) handed over the running of the 17 hectare family domaine in Santenay to his son Justin in 2012. Whilst not being organically certified, Justin follows many organic principles as he is passionate about producing wines that express their terroir.
A small 1 hectare Premier Cru with vines from 20-75 years old. This site is in the north of the appellation close to the border with Chassagne. The nose is deep and rich but beautifully taut showing both spice and structure. Needs time but should be great out of these half bottles in 2018 and 2019.
