2009 Gambal Alex, St.Aubin Murgers des Dents de ChienMar. 2012
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.
2010 Bouton Gilles, St.Aubin Murgers des Dents de ChienMar. 2012
Pale colour. High-toned, fresh, crisp with a fain creamy depth to some herby fruit – rather engaging. Fresh, but not overly so. A decently silky texture and a very nice intensity in the mid palate. Slightly green-tinged fruit in the finish. Tip-top wine for the price.
2009 Bouton Gilles, St.Aubin Murgers des Dents de ChienMay. 2011
Medium, lemon yellow. There is much depth to the nose and some toasted bread aspects too – this is a very good start. More depth and a little more tension after the Chatenière. I’d still like a little more zip, but this is a classier delivery. Nice wine, exceptionally priced.
2009 Bouton Gilles, St.Aubin Murgers des Dents de ChienApr. 2011
The nose has quite subtle oak – a little toasted bread. Lovely freshness in the mouth, again with good intensity and a long, quite stony flavour.
2008 Gambal Alex, St.Aubin Murgers des Dents de ChienMar. 2011
Soft, vanilla accented aromas of fresh fruit. Just a little smoothness of texture, lovely flavours, slightly linear, with balanced intensity then a lingering finish. Few words, but alround excellent wine!

There’s a little savoury bread. A comfortable texture, long with glints of pineapple – seems very good.
2004 Gambal Alex, St.Aubin Murgers des Dents de ChienFeb. 2011
Medium golden colour. The nose is a blend of slightly musky, creamy Puligny style invitation and a much riper core of yellow fruit. In the mouth this has a good width that’s coupled to very good acidity – it seems with riper fruit flavours than in its youth. Grows a little in the mid-palate then slowly decays. It’s a lovely wine, but one I slightly preferred in its youth and would certainly prefer in another 5 or 6 years – ah c’est la vie! At least I can settle down and enjoy it for what it is.
2009 Lamy Hubert, St.Aubin Murgers des Dents de ChienDec. 2010
A hint less floral, more depth of ripe fruit – still fresh. Minerals, stony flavour and lovely acidity that seems to flow over rocks in the finish. Yum!
2008 Gambal Alex, St.Aubin Murgers des Dents de ChienApr. 2010
The aromatics are understated, but complex and fine. If there’s some complexity on the nose, the flavours are tighter in the mouth, yet it’s silky, wide and has a lovely burst of interest in the mid-palate. Mineral flavours linger well. Up to the usual high standard!
