2005 Vincent Girardin Pommard Les Vignots - 750ml
Allen Meadows Burghound
Les Vignots is a well-situated vineyard, above Noizons, near the border with Volnay. Allen Meadows writes: "While Girardin historically has made a commercially styled wine, the last few vintages really do seem to corroborate what he’s saying about wanting to make more classically styled wines. And to this end he told me that he "used up to 60% of the stems in his wine from the Côte de Nuits and up to 30% in those from the Côte de Beaune. 2005 is an aristocratic vintage that isn’t at all fruity or forward and thus I did long but soft vinifications with no punch downs, only pump overs. And I’m also doing a long élevage as well with less new wood too, which is to say between 30 and 40%. For me 2005 is a great vintage, even better than 1999 and I believe the wines, both red and white, will age extremely well. (1/2011)
