Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from February 24 2021

Wine: 2010 St. Aubin "Les Frionnes" 1er

Producer: Domaine Hubert Lamy

Comment: Like the Chez Edouard, this is very restrained, indeed almost aromatically mute and discreet notes of citrus and stone are about all that even aggressive swirling can liberate at present. There is by contrast outstanding punch and intensity to the pear-suffused medium-bodied flavors that display excellent detail on the bone dry, clean and focused finish that delivers strikingly good length.

Score: 91 Drink: 2016+
