The Giraudon family has crafted a 100% pinot noir, 100% hand-harvested, 100% estate-grown and bottled red Burgundy from their vineyards in northern Burgundy and from the low-yielding, high-quality 2019 vintage.

It starts with vineyards planted in rare and excellent Kimmeridgian chalky limestone and clay marl soils at 600 to 1,100 feet of elevation overlooking the village of Chitry. Then the Giraudon’s add in low yields well below the regional norm, 100% hand-harvesting, and centuries of family experience making wine in Chitry. The sunshine of the warm 2019 vintage allowed the pinot noir grapes to ripen fully while cool night temperatures assured the fruit stayed fresh, vibrant, and aromatic. Winemaking and aging in vats, with zero oak, kept the aromas fresh, the flavors vibrant, and the texture silky.
