Domaine Philippe Girard
This is one of Remington Norman's top Domaines of Burgundy and among Clive Coates MW's top Savigny les Beaune Producers. Since his father's retirement in 1999 and the division of the Domaine between Philippe and Jean-Jacques, the new generation of producers have created some of the finest Savigny les Beaune ever seen. Philippe produces wines that deliver purity of fruit and pleasure that true Burgundy Pinot Noir can be, and at a price we all can afford. His style is traditional with modern know how and hygiene. The red wines spend 18 months in oak of which 25 to 30% are typically new French barrels. This Domaine is the top contender for the best Domaine in Savigny.
