Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "En Remilly" 2008, Marc Colin & Fils


I feel as if I have been brought up on En Remilly from Domaine Hubert Lamy. So there is a sense of mischief when I try another producer's En Rem. This 2008 En Remilly from Marc Colin is tight and controlled at the start. Still pale and bright hay yellow. A cylindrical nose dominated by lemon, lime and green apple. You can sniff the tart on this one! I am getting daffodils, pine kernels and vanilla. Very bright, tangy and mineral on the palate with concentrated lemon and lime flavours. Mid-palate has an agressive fruit acidity kick. This is really sharp compared to a lot of the other softer and beguiling 2008s. Scores 21 / 30 for a Saint-Aubin 1er Cru.
