Saint-Aubin Premier Cru, les Murgers des Dents de Chiens, 2013 Domaine Thomas

A delightfully fruity and flinty Burgundy. Distinctive but subtle hints of chalk, measured salinity with a mineral profile. The oak gives the wine some muscle. Intense finish with a good length.

…we also tried Marks & Spencer Montage 1er Cru (13%) – gnerally, this would work with lighter, softer, rindless styles of goats’ cheeses. This is an unoaked Chardonnay which provides good accompaniment to cheeses even if rather swamped by their flavours: pale colour fruity nose; very subtle with a backbone of intensity. Slightly hollow mid palate. Chalky and slightly buttery. Elegant with good finesse. 85/100


Score: 87 /100
