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 very successful red Santenay blend comprising fruit selected from 40-50 year old vines in three different ‘lieux-dits’ namely ‘Clos Genets’, St. Jean & ‘Les Saunières’, totalling 3 hectares. Matured for 12-15 months half in oak barrels (15% new), half in tank to promote the fruit intensity. Lovely expressive red summer fruits (particularly raspberry). Juicy, vibrant and supple. Drink from mid 2018
