Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting, Girardin's 2014 Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a crisp, chalky and focused bouquet that gradually opens in the glass. The palate is fresh and vibrant with a killer thread of acidity, impressive salinity and an intense, much more Bâtard-Montrachet-inspired finish that lingers long in the mouth. This did improve in the glass, gaining a little more precision although in tandem, the oak became a bit "loud-mouthed" on the finish, hence my prudent score.
