ABOUT THE VINEYARD
Domaine Vincent Girardin was birthed in 1982. Upon Vincent's 18th birthday, his father Jean divided his estate into four quarters of three hectares for each of his children. Vincent seized this opportunity, growing on the territory before purchasing and renting additional vineyards. By 1994, Vincent Girardin was ready to enter business under his own name in the Meursault region, where he expended his empire - including the acquisition of the Domaine Henri Clerc. Today, Domaine Vincent Girardin covers 22 hectares, with a heavy bias in favour of white wine growth.
