Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from March 25 2020

Wine: 2011 St. Aubin "La Chatenière" 1er

Producer: Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey

Comment: Here a touch of mineral reduction adds breadth to the aromas of lemon zest and essence of pear. There is yet again a bit more volume to the caressing middle weight flavors that enjoy an abundance of dry extract yet the mouth feel is quite delicate yet the persistent and complex finish is distinctly vibrant and punchy. This is a very attractive cross between class, refinement and personality. Well worth considering.

Score: 91 Drink: 2017+
