Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from December 01 2021

Wine: 2010 St. Aubin "Derrière Chez Edouard" 1er

Producer: Domaine Hubert Lamy

Comment: This is even more elegant than the Macherelles with its restrained but airy and ultra-pure nose of citrus, pear and white flower aromas that enjoy added breadth in the form of a discreet mineral reduction note. There is good volume and energy to the opulent and seductively textured flavors that nonetheless retain a fine sense of cut and precision on the wonderfully intense and impressively long finish. This can't match the Macherelles for sheer depth or power but this is certainly very pretty.

Score: 91 Drink: 2016+
