Vincent Girardin, Les Perrières
Decanter average score:  17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: SB 18 GD 17.5 SS 16.5
The nose has smoky oak with underlying peach and nectarine fruit. Good weighty palate; very concentrated with precision and drive, and there’s minerality beneath the ripe fruit – fine acidity too. Classic, elegant and poised.
