2018 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru “Le Charmois”

BLEND | 100% Chardonnay

VINEYARDS | In the heart of the Côte des Blancs, between Chassagne and Puligny, right next to Montrachet is the small village of Saint-Aubin. White soils of clay with a high limestone content on steep slopes oriented East or South-East.

Le Charmois is an east facing vineyard that lies adjacent to the premier crus of Chassagne-Montrachet. This eastern exposure allows for more sun hours which contribute to the fuller body style wine. Limestone and clay soild at 290 meters altitude.

WINEMAKING | Primary fermentation followed by aging for 16 months in French puncheon.

WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES | Saint-Aubin whites are the colour of sunbeams, ranging across the spectrum of golden hues depending on the vineyard and the vintage. Young, it presents a combination of white flower, flint, green almond and orange blossom notes. With age, it develops rich notes of beeswax and honey, almond paste, amber, cinnamon. It is a firm, tender wine, a little sharp when young, then becoming full-bodied and complete, of great nobility.
