It's not LSD, but it's close.
Domaine Laure, Saint Aubin, Les Eduens, 2005. ($22.99 at Wine Exchange) If you love acid - and I love acid - you will love this little Red Burgundy. It's very rare to see St. Aubin Rouge in the States. The appellation is located at the top of hill, kinda wedged between the upper parts of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. The appellation produces mostly white wines, so this red drinks like a white, loads of taut acidity, stony minerality and subdued cherry fruit. This wine NEEDS food or at least cheese or it may be a bit of a shock on your palate!
