I’ve bought a stash of these well priced wines, some interesting reds too. Hopefully I’m drinking them in some sort of hierarchical order as this is a step up from the Chatenière of the weekend. I don’t get the impression that the quality is at the same level as Gambal’s Dents du Chien, but this has a different price-point and in that respect is a real bargain.
2009 Gilles Bouton, St.Aubin 1er Murgers des Dents du Chien
Medium, lemon yellow. There is much depth to the nose and some toasted bread aspects too – this is a very good start. More depth and a little more tension after the Chatenière. I’d still like a little more zip, but this is a classier delivery. Nice wine, exceptionally priced.
Rebuy – Yes
