Domaine Patrick Miolane Saint-Aubin l'Ebaupin 2006
Les Perrières is a parcel of south-east facing vines situated just behind the domaine. The micro-climate contributes to the amazing character of the wine. This Saint-Aubin is dark red, fluid, almost twinkling. The nose is seductive, marked by liquorice and cassis and with a certain animal character that contributes an extra dimension. Elegant and lifted the palate is completed by the signature Perrières minerality which raises this wine to a level where it might be confused with some of the finer Burgundies of the region. This finesse steers our putative food match towards fish such as sandre à la peau croustillante sur une fondue d'échalote et sauce au vin rouge. If that's a bit too complicated to rustle up in ye olde microwave try it with salmon and a beurre blanc reduction.
