2010 Bouton Gilles, St.Aubin En RemillyApr. 2012
Pale colour. Wide, slightly waxy impression, some faint herbs and with a little yellow fruit too. Fresh, nicely intense with just a hint of mouth-puckering acidity – but not overly so. The flavour of greeen-skinned fruits comes through in mouth-watering fashion. Racy and fun – lovely stuff.
2008 Boisset Jean-Claude, St.Aubin En RemillyAug. 2011
Medium, medium plus yellow. The nose has wafts of grapefruit and pineapple. Day one this is close to tart but with a fabulous acid intensity, the agrume fruit seems just borderline ripe – me? Day two this is classic 2008 with a slightly tropical edge to the fruit but just wonderful acid balance – it seems a little sweeter. I assume my palate wasn’t playing on day one because this is superb on day 2!
2009 Bouton Gilles, St.Aubin En RemillyMay. 2011
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!
2009 Bouton Gilles, St.Aubin En RemillyApr. 2011
On the nose there’s density of fruit and some herbs. Full and balanced with lovely intensity.
2009 Boisset Jean-Claude, St.Aubin En RemillyJan. 2011
The nose is finer than that of the villages. Silkier texture too, ripe and more concentrated flavours.
2009 Moreau Bernard, St.Aubin En RemillyDec. 2010
In bottle. Just a little softer, hides its first fruit notes before slowly growing in the glass. This has a lovely texture and acidity balance. The concentration seems to grow and grow. Lovely wine.
2009 Lamy Hubert, St.Aubin En RemillyDec. 2010
Here the nose shows both width and density, there is a core of ripe fruit surrounded fresh and higher-toned aromas. Fuller but with fine intensity and an equally fine expansion of fresh, mouth-watering flavours – lovely!
2008 Boisset Jean-Claude, St.Aubin En RemillyApr. 2010
Harvested quite late and just 2 weeks in bottle. High-toned aromas. Quite full-bodied, but it seems reasonably balanced. Very good intensity in the mid palate and also its fruit-led finish – bravo!
2003 Colin Marc, St.Aubin En RemillyDec. 2009
Medium-plus golden colour. The nose is slightly tropical, and certainly ripe. In the mouth there is a roundness of shape and okay acidity – the mid-palate flavour has a good extra dimension that goes long in the finish. Just missing a little energy, but smuch better than I expected!
