françoise & denis clair, saint aubin 2004

dents de chien clair aubinThese producers have invested in a very nice new ‘livery’ for their 2004’s – much more elegant than their niaive predecessors.
2004 F & D Clair, St.Aubin 1er Les Murgers des Dents de Chientry to find this wine...
Medium yellow. The nose fresh, just a little savoury and spicy against that citrussy 2004 feel. Medium-intensity with very good acidity and a nice flow into the good finish. Again there’s a slightly savoury element to the palate too. Plenty of flesh here, rather than the taught, haughty aspect of many in 2004. Easy and tasty drinking – very good value at it’s pre-arrival price.
Rebuy – Yes

    […] Whilst I thought François and Denis Clair’s Dents de Chien was an okay wine at the price, this is on a completely different level, and to be frank, not that much more expensive… 2004 Alex Gambal, St.Aubin 1er Les Murgers des Dents de Chien Pale lemon-yellow. A smooth nose of brioche and mineral notes and some quite bready depth – very appealing. This really stands apart on the palate, very good acidity coupled to nice minerality, yet there is good mid-palate impact. The finish is just a little oak driven at the moment, but this wine has drive and personality. Everyone enjoyed this very much. Rebuy – Yes […]
