Guide hachette des vins - 2010

  • Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien 2007

    Not every wine estate in burgundy goes back to the 19th century. Jean-Baptiste Clair represents only the second generation of wine growers, but he's the one who makes the white wines from this domaine. And with talent ! His premier cru isn't far from the first star. Lemon yellow with green glints, it delivers white flower and citrus scents typical of the appellation. Straight in its minerality, it feels like the palate won't ever end. Its matter, still fresh, requires to lay down for at least three years.
  • Santenay Premier Cru Clos des Mouches 2007 *

    This is the smallest vineyard of the twelve premier cru in the village. A part on the Clos Faubard, another one in the Beaurepaire and 80 ares just for him. A garnet 2007 with purple glints. The intense nose is split between fruit and nuances of wood. The palate, fruity with soft tannins is long and elegant. Lay down for one year before enjoying this bottle. A mention for the Clos Genet rouge 2007 , a Village with a woody perfume coupled with soft tannins to drink from this winter.
