Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "Les Murgers des Dents de Chien" 2005, Vincent Girardin
Vincent Girardin is a force to be reckoned with. He produces excellent wines from a wide range of premiers crus and grands crus vineyards - predominantly in the Cote de Beaune. He is one of the new breed of high quality, terroir-focused proprietaire-negociants. Not only that, he has the Cote d'Or's most impressive website . This Saint-Aubin has a simple lemon, cream and mineral nose although remains in its shell at this stage. On the palate the style is elegant with lean lemon fruit and good minerality. In an over-ripe year the domaine has crafted a more typical white Burgundy with finesse. This promises real quality from 2009 due to the excellent citrus fruit and medium to high acidity.
