  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($187) Yellow fruits, smoky oak and a suggestion of truffley earth on the nose. Rich, ripe and smooth, with fruit-driven flavors of white plum and wet stone. Almost deceptively accessible today, as this has softer acidity and a bit less volume and grip than the 2002. Oaky on the finish, but boasts lovely fruit.

    Tasty, medium-bodied Chardonnay, with dried fig, melon, spicy mocha and pronounced butter character. A bit too oaky for my taste on the tannic finish.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

    The 2001 Chevalier-Montrachet reveals a floral, mineral-scented nose and a light to medium-bodied, complex character filled with citrus fruits, gravel, and stones. A flavorful, refined wine, it is undeniably outstanding, yet lacks the depth, flesh, and length for a more exalted review. Lace-like, it impresses with its panoply of detailed flavors, not by power.

  • Styled by Vincent Girardin, these white wines display their quality in finesse, aromatic purity, and harmony between richness and vibrancy. Girardins red wines are profound and intense, balancing tannin and ripe fruit. Vincent Girardin started in 1982 with just two hectares of vineyards. After assuming responsibility for his father's vineyards and exhibiting uncanny business acumen, he turned Girardin into a flourishing Domaine (owned vineyards) and micro-negociant (purchased fruit) enterprise. The Domaine was originally based in Santenay, but in 2002 Girardin moved the operation to Meursault. This new cuverie is testimony to his dedication to skillfully melding traditional vineyard management with modern, efficient winemaking.
