Girardin Grands Vins are the result of significant evolution in quality standards. For some years now Maison Vincent Girardin has upheld its "Très Haute Couture" code of winegrowing practices. After experimenting with biodynamic methods between 2007 and 2010, we now give preference to the purchase of grapes from vineyards managed according to the following principles:

*No herbicides or insecticides, *Deep ploughing, *Use of natural composts from farms in the Burgundy region, *High trellising for better photosynthesis, *Manual harvests with sorting in the vineyard and in the vat room;

Whether it is the Grands Vins of Meursault or the Grands Crus of Puligny-Montrachet, or any of the Grands Vins produced by Maison Vincent Girardin, they are all made with a commitment to the same principles, i.e. the most natural vinification possible. The work begun in the vineyards is thus continued in the winery with:

*The use of very high quality equipment in the application of traditional vinification methods to obtain the best natural expression of the terroir, *Slow fermentation by indigenous yeasts naturally present on the grapes, *Long maturing on fine lees in oak barrels from the best forests in France, with a careful, minimal use of new barrels, *Respect of the lunar calendar for all stages in the vinification process and bottling, in order to preserve as much of the terroirs' energy as possible.

The quality of the wines depends on the technical choices made by the winegrower. Like the Vincent Girardin Grands Vins de Bourgogne, the white wines' quality stems from their finesse and superb aromatic purity, from a balance of richness and smoothness with freshness and liveliness. The red wines are fruity and elegant, with supple tannins. Success in this task requires rigour and vigilance from the winegrower at all times, and in the context of each wine, because every bottle reflects a hillside, and a specific terroir.
