Saint Aubin Rouge 1er Cru “Sur le Sentier du Clou – Vieilles Vignes” 2007 by Prudhon

Posted on Posted in Domaine Henri Prudhon, Occasional Thoughts

Proved to myself once again tonight that this is my favorite red from the Prudhon family. It has the most “grip” and those tannins, rustic for sure, are compelling and in perfect balance. The vintage 2007 lends a lot of grace to this wine and makes the argument for elevating this vintage in ranking amongst the better years of the past decade in Burgundy.

As an aside, the “Sentier” is quite superior to its cousin, the Chassagne Rouge “Les Chambres”, in this vintage. The Chassagne, doesn’t have the breed of this wine – nowhere near as complete.
