2020 Santenay Vieilles Vignes, Justin Girardin

2020 Santenay Vieilles Vignes, Justin Girardin

This is a blend of multiple parcels of older vines (the average age is 55 years), which all share in common their mid-slope position. There is quite a lot of flat land and heavy clay at the bottom of Santenay which is less good, so this is an important distinction. These vines are all in the upper part of the village on limestone, and make for an aromatic, vibrant, fresh, and distinctive red wine packed with black cherry and damson notes. It is full and fruity without being heavy or hard work.
