Green Asparagus Wine

Gérard Thomas (ably assisted by his daughter, Anne) is one of the very best producers of white St. Aubin. He took over the domaine from his father in 1982 and has built-up a core of top vineyard sites since then. The vines are situated primarily within the commune of St. Aubin, St. Aubin 1er Crus (Murgers des Dents de Chien, La Chatenière, Frionnes and Combes), also Meursault 1ers Cru Blagny and Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne.

Burgundy, France
A barrel fermented wine...Pale green-yellow in colour...a delicate aroma...flinty...hazlenuts. Light buttery palate...crisp but no way sharp...the type of wine that makes you wish you had one of the top wines. A thrust of citrus begs for food and that is what it got.
Points 16.25

Galatiner Potatoes (from Italy)...Green Asparagus...which , thankfully for me, is also grown more widely in our area...and a pork chop. I much prefer green it cold or hot...and whereas the season was always long for me...with every second meal having the I can join in with my green version.
