  • Located not far west of Chassagne-Montrachet, the village of Saint-Aubin produces distinguished red and white wines with very good quality for money. For a long time Saint-Aubin appellation stayed in the shadow of its illustrious neighbors. Saint-Aubin is a terroir to discover for its outstanding qualities and its attractive price.

    Of a nice pale yellow hue, this Saint Aubin 1er Cru emanates intense scent of white fruits and fresh almonds. Round on the palate, this wine expresses hints of brioche. Nice length.

Press review
    • Saint-Aubin 1er Cru 2020 - James Suckling - 92/100 pts

      An excellent introduction to this literally and metaphorically cool wine that has a wonderful balance of ripe-mirabelle fruit, mid-palate creaminess and lively acidity. So charming right now. Very clean finish. Drink or hold.

    • Saint Aubin 1er Cru - - June 2016 - 88/100

      A discreet but agreeably fresh and cool nose features notes of citrus, pear and white flowers. There is excellent concentration to the vibrant and attractively stony flavors that possess unusually good power in the context of what is typical for St. Aubin, all wrapped in a clean if somewhat simple finish. More depth will of course develop with age but I doubt that this will rise to the next level given where it is today.
