alex gambal 09 st.aubin dents du chien

Okay, I’m not quite comparing the same wine as the vintages are not quite a match, but they are new wines in my cellar, so…

2009 Alex Gambal, St.Aubin 1er Murgers les Dents du Chien
After the 2010 Bouton, this has a little brioche on the nose with higher-toned, faintly agrume fruit. There is more depth and concentration than apparent in the Bouton, if slightly less acidity – so there doesn’t seem to be quite the intensity – but there remains despite the extra richness, balance, and more to contemplate. Very good wine, but then it should be for twice the price of the Bouton 😉 Still an easy rebuy for me.
Rebuy – Yes

    Which would you rather have – the 2008 or this 2009 Alex G St Aubin 1er MlDdC ? Am trying hard to make my 2008’s last, grateful to you still for the recco on that, one of my most enjoyable wines of the last year. The AG BB’s aren’t too ‘shabby’ either 🙂

    I’ve never tried the Bouton (or any of the domaine wines come to that) but would seriously like to at circa half the price of Alex’s comparable.
