2006 Roux Pere et Fils Premier Cru "La Chateniere"

     The 2006 Roux Pere et Fils Premier Cru "La Chateniere" from the Saint Aubin appellation in the Cote de Beaune in the Burgundy region of France, was purchased for approximately $35. In the glass, this wine was a clear, pale gold. It had medium intense aromas of buttered toast, vanilla, almonds, apricot and citrus. It was well-balanced with a medium body, medium acidity and medium+ alcohol (13.5% abv). Flavors reflected the aromas then ended with a medium+ length marzipan finish. 
     A very good wine and a perfect pairing for Mac & Cheese with Lobster!
