Girardin '99s appear to be his finest vintage to date for red wines, due in equal part to recent changes in technique here and to the high quality of the fruit on the Cote de Beaune. Following the fermentation, Girardin did an extended week-long decanting of the must to leave only the fine lees behind, and most of the '99 reds were still in barrel on their lees in November. "The more these wines develop in barrel, the more backward they become, which is a sign of a great year," says Girardin." - Stephen Tanzer
