Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from July 30 2014

Wine: 2004 St. Aubin "Clos de la Chatenière"

Producer: Domaine Hubert et Olivier Lamy

Comment: This is usually Lamy's finest St. Aubin 1er though in 2004, it has competition from the En Remilly. The nose reflects an almost total integration of the wood treatment that highlights the fresh, elegant and exceptionally pure citrus and acacia blossom aromas that dissolve into refined, textured and admirably deep flavors that possess striking intensity and terrific length. This is classy juice that finishes bone dry though not austere. Highly recommended.

Score: 91 Drink: 2009+
