    I just picked up the 2005 Vincent Girardin Murgers Des Dents De Chien St Aubin. It was fantastic! My wife and I cooked some Mahi Mahi and really enjoyed this vintage with it.

    GV,
    QOTD: Just have not been aware of Saint Aubin, but until I started watching WLTV last month I had never had a wine from France. Since then I’ve had a few, but the selection here isn’t the greatest. I always head out to the few wine shops and search for ones you recommend though and will seek out a Saint Aubin this weekend.
    My QOTD: Do you walk around the rest of the day at work with no shirt on and throw one on before the episode? I bet the rest of the staff would love that. Started laughing when it looked like you had one button done on the entire front of the shirt:-)

    The more I learn about French wines the more I realize just how little I know. I haven’t had St. Aubin but will seek out (you’re sold out of those top two !!).

    Great show Gary, love learning about new places!!

    Q – Not had one, would have a tough time bringing myself to spend $30-$50 on a Chardonnay of any kind, with the exception of Champagne but that’s different. Usually reserve those price points for more serious reds. Baby steps Gary, I’m now drinking a significant amount of white wine, a year and a half ago before I discovered the thunder show, I never touched whites.

    Never had one…will try. Just caught up on the last 5-8 episodes this weekend. Work has made me lag behind. I’m starting a monthly tasting group outside of the Vayner nation before I heard of T cubed (third thirsty Thursday)…first up for my group is Cali Cabs. Also, I picked up the Spectator that reviewed 2005 Bordeaux, great issue. Although I get bummed when I see the prices in the magazine, go online to buy a few only to find that the prices are already higher. I did pre-order a mixed case from the Wine Lib at around $30/bottle, but that’s it. I was just getting into wine when the futures hit and was in school so I missed out a little but I’ll be ready for the next time. Good shows man, keep it up.

    Live there right now actually, love the St. Aubin. Actually had an amazing St. Romain the other day, really shocked me. Going to go out and get one today along with the cab franc from the loire for ya. PS: looks like your shirt was trying to abandon ship, everyone got a little more Gary then we had bargained for.

    I am a major fan of the Saint Aubin (I have to tell you that the correct pronunciation in French is S-ant O-ban).
    I went to a tasting in Puligny-Montrachet where I tasted 13 wines from Domaine Leflaive. They completely blew me away! Made me a fan.

    FYI – Dents de Chiens vineyard means “Teeth of the Dogs!”.

    Gosh, I need to catch up on my episodes. Anyway, QOTD; I’ve never had a Saint Aubin, and I’ve got no excuse! They actually have two bottles available in the gulag that is the Ontario Liquor Control Board (I should point out that not all Canadian provinces share the same liquor laws, it’s just that Ontario’s are particularly egregious). They ain’t cheap, and I ain’t P Diddy, but maybe for some special occasion I’ll give it a try.

    QOTD – I am sure it is good wine, but 50 bones for a white is too much at this house the wife cannot white wine it does not go well. So we do a lot of Reds. Plus, I really have trouble breakin 20 bones for a bottle. I do it occassionally, but only for special wine.

    Hi, I’m new to your show. I think it’s great. At first, i thought, wow who is this guy? Being from Montréal, Canada, a widely french speaking town and province(Quebec), we have nothing even close to this kind of show on the internet. Just blogs, a bit boring, as a matter a fact, very boring. I can see you are passionnate about wine, as am i. Also, i’m into sports, mostly hockey, was in into baseball, getting more and more into football, since we used to have a mlb baseball team, the expos, wich were stolen from us from big bucks millionnaires who only wanted to buy the team and move it quickly as possible.We have a pretty decent canadian football team and the Montreal Canadians for hockey, the most winning team of championships after the Yankees.

    Enough about sports, let’s talk wine. I’m into wine, recently found a passion for burgundy. I have a friend whose very well off, and owns a place in France where he has a small vineyard, mostly with bordeaux varietals, but he recently added Syrah. Did the harvest with him in 2005, blew me away. Tasted some great wines while i was there, and tasted in 2006, at a dinner at his house in Montreal, a 1975 Montrachet, and in the same evening, a 1970 Echezaux(red) the white was a bit tired, but the 75 was still in great shape.

    So this is how i got into Burgundian wines and pinots and chardonnays. I just watched the episode of saint-Aubin whites and never actually had a St-aubin before. I also looked at the CRU restaurant episodes and thought they were both excellent. My question is: have you ever tried a Saint-Aubin premier cru En Remilly Hubert Lamy 2002? here in Canada, it’s a bit more expensive. Actually, quite a lot. We have a big, government owned, wine stores group, where every wine passes through. We can’t buy wine anywhere else, except in some very small terroir stores, wich sell only wines from, here, wich i have to admit generally suck badly. The price for the Saint-aubin 2002 is 71$. But a Montrachet or anything close like a Puligny or Chassagne, the cheapest one is 70$ and a bit time producer is anything from 140 to 500$. There’s actually a sale right now on that wine(the st-aubin 02) at 56$ can(43 us!!, yes our dollar is now worth zip!!). Is it worth it? Thanks if you can answer and if not, i know this is mostly a comment page, but what a great discovery your show and podcasts are. Thanks again.

    Although I’m among those sorry to have the St. Aubin secret outed (it’s the poor man’s Puligny), but a fine show and spot on accurate, although picking up marshmallow in these wines seems something of a stretch.
