(from 50+ year old Chassagne vines) This is aromatically quite reserved with only trace amount of wood influence visible on the white flower and spiced pear suffused nose that carries into the rich, robust and powerful flavors that possess real size, weight and punch and this too displays a wonderful sense of purity and finishing linearity plus there is more minerality than one usually sees in the typical Bâtard.

($220) Sweet, sappy aromas of peach and nuts. At once sweet and gripping, with superb sugar/acid balance. Less minerally and less refined than the Chevalier but offers more obvious volume today without any loss of verve. Peachy and long on the back. Girardin's best '04s show outstanding richness and opulence for the vintage, and a bit more verve than the fatter '05s. (Vineyard Brands, Birmingham, AL)

Bold, showing power, with lemon, hazelnut, vanilla and mineral notes, backed by a vibrant structure. The elements need time to integrate, but this is alive and resonates on the finish.
