Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard (Savigny-les-Beaune) -- 2014s Tasted from Cask, Tank, and Bottle

The estate dates to 1906; Jean-Jacques began in 1972 and now has about 15 ha of vines. We tasted the wines in a new facility that has existed about a year. This is clearly yet another excellent source in Savigny-les-Beaune, one of the centers of interest for those who seek the best values in the Côte d’Or. (Continue reading here.)
