Bourgogne Blanc Cuvée Saint Vincent 2017 - Vincent Girardin
Fruity and floral aromas. A fresh and mineral wine.
The grapes come from parcels located in the regional appellation area on the Côte de Beaune. Soil : Clay and limestone. 100% Chardonnay. Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).
After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 500 liters (10% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts and aged during 11 months. During this time, we did the stirring of the lees in the barrels. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling, according to the lunar calendar ("fruit” day).
