Saint-Aubin: The Puligny-Montrachet of the poor man… :-)

September 4, 2017


Saint-Aubin is one of my preferred terroir in white Burgundy and very much in the style of Puligny-Montrachet…  It is the only village in white Burgundy that has a majority of 1er Cru parcels… and even some the Saint-Aubin village parcels have the steepness of 1er Cru of other villages!!  From a vintage perspective, the 2015’s are very rich and concentrated, and the 2016 look very promising with a laser sharp acidity and minerality!!
