27°C today – whoope! Looks like I’m fixed on the whites 😉
I hope it doesn’t get a bit too boring for you, but having lugged all these bottles home, I’m about to embark on testing them – fear not, I only bought 2 more from Alex!!!
2010 Alex Gambal, St.Aubin 1er Les Murgers des Dents du Chien
I drank the last glass of the 2006 Bourgogne in preparation for this, in comparison, this has a rocket running through the middle of it! There’s a bit of toasty bread to start with, but behind the aromas are of fine sugared lemons with a the faintest hint cold custard. In the mouth this is defined by a glorious acidity that brings the intensity to a crescendo of concentration in the mid-palate – it’s such a whoosh – you’re hardly likely to notice how smooth and silky the texture is. The finish is hint mineral and understatedly long. Overall I found this a thrill in the glass but I wonder if it could get a bit screechy as it ages? Who knows (I eventually will!), but it’s just fabulous now!
Rebuy – Yes
I always buy some for a friend too – I wonder if should tell them that their allocation has been cut(?)!!
