gilles bouton 2009 st.aubin 1er en remilly



Bingo – super wine, stunning price.

2009 Gilles Bouton, St.Aubin 1er En Remilly
Medium, lemon yellow. This has a depth of aroma matched by fine high-tones – it’s rather pretty. Width, depth and roundness of texture are obvious, coupled to fine acidity. Currently this is, by far, the most impressive and intense of these St.Aubins – lovely wine – I will have to buy (even) more!
Rebuy – Yes

    Bill, any 09 Hubert Lamy in your list of St. Aubins to pop?

      Hi JT,
      No because they were just getting ready for bottling last time I visited. Still, they are one of my top half-dozen producers for 09 whites…

    So what sort of price point are we talking about here ?

    I’ve been searching for some under the radar producers with good value whites for every day – or every week – drinking. But so far much less success than with the reds.

      Including French tax I think this was about €13 Michael – from the domaine’s standard tariff. The previous two 1ers were €12.50…
      Of-course there are a few costs in getting there and then getting back with your bottles!
      An excellent value domaine – Chassagne Villages rouge – €10 etc.
      I also have some cases for drinking through the week, a couple in handy mid-week 50cl size 😉
      Will publish my notes, but not before the end of July I think

    Thanks Bill – and keep the recommendations coming !

    I’ve made a resolution to buy mainly direct from the domaine and to concentrate on a nice spread of low profile places.

    The hard part of this is convincing the family that Burgundy is the ideal holiday destination !
