Vincent Girardin St. Veran 2009
This wine has what I would call a graceful nose, if you can smell smooth, this is what I also get. On a blind tasting I would immediately think this wine was a Sauvignon Blanc and not a Chardonnay. On going in a little deeper into the glass I get a distinct sharpness and a little mineral citrus – grapefruit I think. With my first taste, I found the wine full bodied with a steely, but smooth finish. It has an abundance of tropical fruit flavors and a sharp clean balance. I would suggest drinking this wine with shell fish or a strong brie or just alone working late. It all works. This is a very approachable wine, which makes it a very drinkable one! It is also a bit naughty because I seemed to drink more than one glass! It was all the wine's doing - honest
External Reviews for Vincent Girardin St. Veran
Bubble gum on the nose. Racy acidity on the palate. Well-balanced though, with sweet and sour fruit. Very mineral, with some strong vanilla from the oak. On the finish, some candied, preserved lemon.
Light yellow. Musky pear and mirabelle aromas are complicated by anise and lemon thyme. Gently chewy Saint-Veran, with ripe orchard fruit flavors and good mineral grip. Riper on the finish, leaving behind a sweet melon note. Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2007 Girardin, Vincent Saint Veran 750ml
