Vincent Girardin Santenay ‘Les Gravieres’ 1er Cru is a lovely smooth wine, reasonable tannins but rich complex flavours.
Hailing from Cote de Beaune, in the Northern region of Burgundy, the Pinot Noir grapes for this wine are picked and sorted by hand, and aged in oak barrels with malolactic fermentation to give a lovely rounded wine. A bouquet of strawberry in its youth, it is characterised by chestnut and prune as it ages.
Drinking very well now but will continue to age in bottle for several years.
Excellent value Burgundian Pinot Noir.
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
