Pierre-Vincent Girardin is no stranger to the great sites of Burgundy. He represents the 13th generation of his family’s winemaking lineage, and today, produces wine from some of the most hallowed sites across the Côte d’Or.
Although young, Pierre-Vincent’s hands-on vineyard experience exceeds many neighboring winemakers around him. Growing up amongst the vines, Pierre-Vincent’s earliest memories include running around the cellar with his father, Vincent Girardin, who sold the family domaine in 2011. However, Pierre-Vincent’s father held on to 4.5 hectares of vines from his top sites, so as to pass them on to his son. In addition to his estate-owned plots, Pierre-Vincent’s family’s long standing relationships with prestigious growers around Burgundy have allowed him access to some of the region’s top growing sites, including Corton-Charlemagne, Montrachet, and beyond.
