BEAUNE, BURGUNDY, FRANCE
With a family history growing grapes in Savigny les Beaune going back to 1529, Jean-Jacques Girard and his family continue this tradition in their 12 hectares of vineyards in Savigny, Pernand-Vergelesses and Volnay.
Jean-Jacques took over as sole proprietor in the late 1990s after he split with his brother, and produces delicious, elegant wines that are made in the vineyard.
Delicious! Ripe strawberries and raspberries with hints of compote. So well balanced, delicate fresh fruit mingles with more ripe, juicy fruit and then a savoury, farmyardy finish. WOW! Peter's Score:...
