GILLES BOUTON WHITE BURGUNDY CASE
We met Gilles Bouton back in the days of our hotel-barge Le Papillon when we were cruising the inland waterways in search of the real Burgundy. I remember the first taste of his Saint-Aubin 1er Cru ‘en Remilly’, thinking we had discovered the best deal in white Burgundy ever.
We have just received our 2020 allocation of his Saint Aubin 1er Cru 'Murgers des Dents de Chien'
It's a killer

Saint Aubin 1er Cru 'Murgers des Dents de Chiens' 2019 (11 Bottles)
Gilles has two different parcels in this, the best known of the Saint-Aubin premier crus. One with old vines, situated near the Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru ‘Les Garennes’ (which he also makes), and the other near Puligny 1er Cru ‘Folatieres’. He makes these wine in double-sized barrels, 40% new oak, to tame the tannins. There is a deep, almost Meursault quality to the Dents de Chien, spicy and complex. Great continuity from attack, through mid-palate and on to a superb finish.
Meursault 1er Cru 'Blagny' 2018 (1 Bottle)
Rich citrus fruit with firm acidity; ripe with a good cut of minerality. Powerful, but not heavy. It’s very structured, with balance born of acidity and minerality
