Du Gardin-Perrotto

Ludovic du Gardin and Fabrice Perrotto own about 13ha of vineyard in the Côte Chalonnaise. The jewel in the crown is 6.9 ha of red Givry Premier Cru Clos Salomon, planted in 1965 on sloping land facing east-south-east. The middle and bottom parts produce the best wine.

The property can trace its origins back to 1375 when Hugo Salominis is recorded as selling wine to the papal court in Avignon. It has since been owned from 1632 by the Du Gardin family. They also have white wines from Montagny Le Clou, a 5.4ha vineyard, and Givry Premier Cru Grande Berge, 1 ha.

Burgundy Vintage 2018

The maturity of the grapes reflects the year’s unbroken sunny summer weather. From 25th June until the harvest it was warm and, apart from the odd storm, there was little or no rain, allowing the grapes to ripen fully. By contrast plentiful spring rain had created a good reserve of water in the soil for the vines to draw upon, so that there was neither heat stress nor raisining of the grapes later in the season.

That water supply, along with a successful flowering, ensured a generous harvest the size of which mitigated some of the heat and explains why the grapes are ripe but not overripe. Anticipating their precocity, the producers began harvesting at the end of August and brought in ripe and balanced fruit in very good health, with no fungal diseases in evidence. The resulting white wines have a striking purity of fruit about them.
