Reds are 100% destemmed and undergo a short maceration in open vats before thermo-regulated fermentation. Wines are then raised in 15% new oak ( 25% for the old-vine Pommard and the Beaune 1er Cru ‘Clos du Roi) for 15 months.


The domaine of Jean-Jacques Girard extends over 18 hectares in the Cote D`Or region of Burgundy. It is divided among the villages of Nuit St George, Savigny, Pernand-Vergelesses and Volnay. One of our favourite producers, we like Jean Jacques wines as they offer great purity and elegance that is beautifully married with an aromatic, fruity style. He uses cool fermentation that helps keep the wines stylistically fresh. A great range for all occasions delivering consistent quality and superb value from this highly-rated region.

Jean-Jacque Girard's family was growing grapes in Savigny-les Beaune back in 1529. That, as the French say, is 'formidable', and would make the domain one of the oldest in Burgundy. But really what matters to us today is what happened to the domain in the past generation. In the late 90s, the original and venerable Domaine Girard-Vollot was split between Georges Girard's two sons Jean-Jacques and Phillipe. The original domain was about 38 acres. And since the split, Jean-Jacques has built his holdings back to over 40 acres, making it one of the most impressive domains in Savigny.
