Vincent Girardin Chassagne-Montrachet Caillerets Premiere Cru 2005

External Review by Millesima USA LLC:

Vincent Girardin has an extensive domaine of 37 acres on the Cote de Beaune and also farms other parcels, and the fruit from both is vinified in his modern cellars on the plains east of Meursault. He has recently stopped stirring the lees of his white wines, and now prefers an extended fermentation under low-temperature conditions. He normally employs from 60% to 80% new oak of Allier and Vosges for his premier cru whites.
