The Giraudon family has been farming and making wine in Chitry for centuries. The current proprietor, Marcel Giraudon, follows very traditional methods in his work, keeping yields modest (concentrates the fruit flavors) and harvesting by hand. Their vineyards are on hillsides of Kimmeridgian chalky marl, the same magical soil found in Grand Cru Chablis.

This lovely Pinot Noir is light in color, wonderfully aromatic, fruity and refreshing, year after year. We get red and dark berry fruits like currant, cranberry, and cherry, with earthy spice, lean acidity, and chalky tannins on the finish.
