Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from September 19 2018

Wine: 2007 St. Aubin "Murgers des Dents de Chien"

Producer: Maison Alex Gambal

Comment: Here the nose offers another step up in aromatic refinement and purity and while the difference is on the margin, it is clearly noticeable. Elegant and stylish aromas of lemon, green apple, pear and rose petal serve as a striking introduction to the precise and focused flavors that display ample amounts of the typical St. Aubin minerality and this exudes precision, in fact the term 'laser-like' would not be an inapt modifier, all wrapped in a silky finish that is akin to rolling pebbles around in your mouth. Like the Bourgogne-Prestige, this is highly recommended.

Score: 92 Drink: 2014+
