Winemaker Notes

The nose is without the usual oak overtone, although it still has vanilla bean aromas. Thick like ice cream, nutty pistachio lemon/lime. Sweetened, powerful and elegant, bursting at the seams. Explosive, a real grand cru.

An expressive and elegant nose of honeysuckle, white peach and fresh lemon complements well the very round and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract. This is really very stylish with excellent finishing depth and intensity.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Bienvenue-Batard-Montrachet emerges from the glass with juicy peaches, butter, spices and a host of other rich aromas and flavors. The wine gains volume and dimension in the glass. The Bienvenue is one of the more opulent of the 2009s at Girardin. This is the first parcel Girardin harvests. That notwithstanding, the acidities are always on the low side here.

Vincent Girardin Vincent Girardin Winery Image

The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is relatively recent. In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers based in Santenay since the 17th century, decided to strike out on his own and began producing wine from five acres of vines that he had inherited from his parents. From his earliest youth, Vincent had a passion for working with vines and great respect for the potential that they represent, and his ambition was to produce his own wine. The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world, and this enabled him to expand his activity, focusing primarily on the great white and red wines of the Côte de Beaune. To cope with the growing demand for his wines, he developed an approach that was new in Burgundy: he purchased grapes from producers who shared the same philosophy and the same high standards. In 2012, Vincent Girardin sold his operation to a long-standing partner of the Maison. Jean-Pierre Nié, President of the Compagnie des Vins d’Autrefois in Beaune, naturally decided to continue with the small team of nine people that had been faithful to the Maison for many years. Today, winemaker Eric Germain continues to uphold the style of the wines.

Puligny-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premiers Crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grands Crus.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot Noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
