Tasting Notes

From limestone-rich hills comes this Premier Cru white Burgundy from the quaint village of Saint Aubin. The vines from the Fleurs de Coteaux site are 35 years old. The grapes were hand-harvested and then fermented with indigenous yeasts in oak barrels (15% new). This was a particularly great vintage and is a wine that can be held back.

Staff Pick Notes

A radiant, golden Burgundy that shows off a premier cru vineyard in a fine vintage. Perfectly agreeable with a rich chicken dish or on its own at cocktail hour. Notes of fresh pastry, beeswax, pineapple, honeysuckle, and spices are on the palate. The village of St. Aubin is west of the famed vineyards of Montrachet. It shares some of the rich, rounded character of those wines, but is generally more accessible. While it was known decades ago for its rustic red wines, white wine production now dominates. Aging in a combination of new and used barrels gives it a beautiful texture and flavor. The faint creaminess is complemented by bold fruit qualities in the wine.
