Jean-Jacques Girard Chassagne-Montrachet 2022
What We Say
Chassagne-Montrachet - the infamous white Burgundy with delicate aromas of green apple, butter and mineral notes. On the palate, it is elegant, with lively acidity and a creamy texture. It pairs perfectly with creamy or fish-based dishes.
What They Say
Golden and shiny color. Aromas of hawthorn, acacia and honeysuckle mingle with hazelnut. The flint recalls the deep minerality of a wine sometimes toasted, buttered. On the palate, the fat matches its persistent softness. Its opulence and power make it the ideal partner for fine white meats such as poultry and veal in sauce. Without forgetting his performance on fish, and lobster.
About The Producer Jean-Jacques Girard
About five centuries ago, Jean Girard began cultivating vines in Savigny-Les-Beaune. Seven generations later, Jean-Jacques Girard established his own domain to carry on the family tradition. In 2008, his son Vincent joined him on the estate. Today, the family domain spans approximately fifteen hectares and produces around 100,000 bottles annually. Their farming practices are rooted in a deep respect for the terroir and the environment, combining traditional expertise with modern technology in crafting their wines.
