Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from November 25 2020

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

Producer: Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey

Comment: Here too reduction presently dominates the nose though it's clear that the fruit is quite ripe. There is excellent richness to the powerful, driving and intense medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent complexity and the best length of any of these St. Aubin 1ers. There is a trace of wood on the backend but there is sufficient density of material that it should be absorbed in due course. Terrific quality.

Score: 90-93 Drink: 2015+
