Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard, Savigny-Lès-Beaune Blanc, Burgundy, France, 2020
Jean-Jacques and Agnès Girard run the family estate with their sons Vincent and François. Over the past 20 years, Jean-Jacques has built the estate into one of Burgundy’s finest and has acquired vineyards in all the top villages of the northern Côte de Beaune. Following the construction of a new winery, the whites are now fermented and aged in separate cellars which has temperature control to allow for greater precision in the vinification and élevage.
A traditional fermentation and ageing in 25% new 225 litre oak barrels.
Type: 225 Litre
% wine oaked: 100
% new oak: 25
The 30+ year old vines give a wine with impressive weight and concentration. Rich and intense with lovely, peachy fruit and a long, persistent finish.
The weight and concentration of this wine works well with Crayfish and Langoustine, Goats cheese tart and Pork Filet Mignon.
