Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from August 21 2019

Wine: 2009 St. Aubin "Les Murgers des Dents de Chien" 1er

Producer: Champy

Comment: An elegant, fresh and beautifully nuanced nose speaks of lemon, white flowers and wet stone hints that are trimmed in deft wood notes. The rich, intense, delicious and complex medium-bodied flavors also evidence mineral hints that continue onto the balanced, dry and solidly persistent finish. A lovely effort that is worth a look.

Score: 91 Drink: 2015+
