Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from February 19 2020

Wine: 2009 St. Aubin "Derrière Chez Edouard - Vieilles Vignes" 1er

Producer: Domaine Hubert Lamy

Comment: Very mild reduction knocks down the expressiveness of the otherwise pretty and ripe red berry fruit and wet stone infused nose. The rich, cool and equally stony middle weight flavors possess an abundance of dry extract that renders the firm tannins to the background on the moderately austere and impressively persistent finish. Lovely quality here and this is quite stylish as well.

Score: 91 Drink: 2016+
