Jacques Girardin

The Girardin family can trace its roots in the southern part of the Cote de Beaune back to the early 1800s. It was only after World War II that Jacques' father Jean really start to develop the vineyards with several important sites in Santenay which, on his retirement, were divided between his four children. One of them was Vincent, who built an excellent reputation based on some very high quality wines. Another was his brother Jacques who, over the years, has extended his vineyard holdings northwards in Savigny-les-Beaune, Pommard and Chassagne-Montrachet so that today the total vineyard area controlled by this branch of the family is 17 hectares.
