Suggestion from March 05 2014
Wine: 2004 St. Aubin "Sur Gamay"
Producer: Domaine Henri Prudhon et Fils
Comment: This is the first wine to display any appreciable wood influence even though it is subtle with hints of pain grillé faming citrus-infused upper register aromas that continue onto the round, intense and surprisingly powerful medium weight flavors that coat the mouth and stain the palate on the bone dry finish. This doesn't quite have the minerality of the Perrières but it has more punch and power.
Score: 90 Drink: 2008+
