2001 Vincent Girardin Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru (qty: 1)
(still a bit of malic acidity remaining) Aromas of apple, hazelnut and nut oil. Superripe and very dense; conveys a strong impression of sucrosity for a dry wine. Not really complex but already offers great richness and nearly confectionery sweetness. Finishes impressively long, ripe and sweet. Just this side of heavy today. (ST)
This too is very oaky but in this case, there is more sheer size, weight and extract to buffer it and this may actually succeed in integrating it over time. While there is more size here than in the Bienvenues and certainly more intensity, there is also less precision and this is frankly less about intrinsic quality than a choice of stylistic preference.
White pepper and stones can be found in the nose of the 2001 Batard-Montrachet. An elegant, stone and mineral-dominated wine, it has outstanding delineation, purity of flavors, and length. Medium-bodied, it is fleshy, expressive, and concentrated. (PR)
