Santenay "Clos de la Comme-Dessus" 2005, Vincent Girardin

Other wines from Vincent Girardin, a high quality negociant, have won plaudits from the Burgoblog team such as the Saint-Aubin 1er Cru 2005 and the Savingy 2004 but this Santenay failed to impress. Fairly flat nose with few aromatic undulations. Warmed on the palate with some citrus, fruit-driven characteristics. Round and pleasant enough but small and restricted like a Mini Metro. Overall this is an underwhelming wine from a vintage which has typically been very open.

  1. This Domaine Vincent Girardin wine is a not negociant bottling, though they have produced plenty of negociant versions, especially in red after 2002. The 2008 version of this wine is bright, with banana, fennel and orange. It, like this wine, was estate bottled. The 2005 whites were not as interesting.
