2010 Bouton Gilles, St.Aubin la ChatenièreApr. 2012
Pale colour. A hint of oak toast and clean high-toned aromas, slowly it has more of a brioche impression before disappearing completely. Leaner than the Dents du Chien, with a linear minerality – quite some intensity too – a burst of flavour in the mid-palate with a new, faintly sweet herbal note. Understated, lingering finish that’s couched with a subtle sweetness. Great value wine without a doubt.

Medium, medium-pale lemon yellow. A very pretty, slightly waxy aroma with a equally pretty sweet yellow fruit with just the occasional sensation of sulfur. Across the tongue there is a mineral flavour and just enough acidity. There’s not the greatest of intensity and frankly I’d like a hint more acidity, but it’s quite well balanced and finishes very nicely. No fireworks, rather understated competence. This is the price of many a bourgogne so hard to complain. In the end this and one other bottle from the case were about the same – all the others were much finer.

The nose is higher-toned, a ripe core of fruit with some surrounding herbs. Again, clean and fresh flavours of decent intensity – very tasty.

The ripe fruit aromas are redolent of the Dents du Chien, perhaps with more width. Great freshness that are coupled to mineral flavours which expand across the mid-palate – Yum again!
