Since its foundation in 1980 in Santenay, Vincent Girardin has become one of the most famous domains in Meursault. He began at the ripe age of 19 years old, and made his first wines from 5 acres of vineyards that he had inherited from his parents. His strong desire for success demanded him to create relationships with suppliers and growers- a practice that was just beginning to rise in Burgundy at that time. With the help of winemaker Eric Germain, who was brought on to the team in 2003, Vincent discovered that he wanted to do as little intervention as possible with the fruit to create a level of premium Burgundian offerings. In 2012, the label was sold to Germain, and they still continue to push out meaningful and purpose-driven Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
