Saint-Romain is a predominantly white wine appellation in the Côte de Beaune, Bourgogne, where the vines grow at 400 metres above sea level in a natural amphitheatre of limestone.
Here, Vincent Girardin has harnessed altitude, soil and the Chardonnay grape to produce a textured white wine, with balanced limestone minerality that's pure pleasure to drink.
This wine has beautiful aromas of honeysuckle and ripe pears and plums. The palate is bracing and delicious with notes of apple and pear. A mineral ‘caillou’ character is the hallmark of great wines from Saint Romain and its delightful salty mineral streak will make it an ideal foil for rich dishes.
