The Society's Exhibition St. Aubin 2003 Prudhon

A really light and fruity Burgundy and certainly the bet I've seen for £8 - it may lack the intensity of some of the big names, but as a summer drink I'd be hard pressed to fault it - immediately pleasing it's full of raspberry, cherry and gamey characters on the nose and a mouth full of red fruit notes, balanced beautifully with a touch of acidity and a little tannin (a really little tannin!) Completely ideal for Summer drinking - the delicateness of the wine means I might not serve it at a BBQ, but as a red alternative to go go with a cool salad it would be lovely.
