This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Vincent Girardin and Chinese food

Dinner at the Chairman (大班樓). The food was paired with wines from Vincent Girardin, and Marco Caschera from the domaine was here.

2007 Vincent Girardin Saint-Aubin Les Murgers des Dents de Chien - really sweet nose with minerals and flint. A little hint of hot and ripeness on the palate. Toasty corn notes at the end. Pretty surprising on the upside.

2007 Vincent Girardin Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes-Dessus - minerals, steely, citrus lemon, a bit sweet and buttery. Reasonably ripe on the palate with slightly higher acidity than the Saint-Aubin. Definitely feel the difference interroir.

2006 Vincent Girardin Santenay 1er Cru Clos des Tavannes - really sweet and fragrant nose with white flowers and minerals. Very nice. Reasonably sweet and smooth on the palate. A little toasty at the end.

2007 Vincent Girardin Beaune 1er Cru Les Bressandes Vieilles Vignes - smoky with Chinese medicine notes, along with spices and mushroom. Not as open and fruity, rather closed.

2007 Vincent Girardin Pommard 1er Cru Les Grands Epenots Vieilles Vignes - a beautiful wine, with lots of black fruits such as blackcurrant. Very young and vibrant, a little smoky, and sweet on the nose as well as palate. Very enjoyable.
