The Très Girard vineyard is near Morey’s restaurant of the same name. “We forgot to say Stop to the whole bunches, in 2017,” admits Nicolas, so 90% went into that wine – which proved to be lovely. He adds: “That was an accident, now it’s a tradition!” – with 100% being included in the 2020. Medium-deep, red purple in colour, this is fine and fragrant on both nose and palate. Middle flavours are round and fleshy, with the wine needing 1-2 years bottle-age for the character from stems and skins to merge in seamlessly (for drinking 2023-2029+).
