Où nous trouver ?
Saint-Aubin

Characteristics

Soil type: clayey-limestone.
Location: The vines are grown on a number of small, south-east facing plots in the commune of Saint-Aubin.
Age of vines: the oldest plot was planted in 1985, the other vines date from the 2000s.
Grape variety: Chardonnay

Vinification and ageing
After harvesting by hand, the grapes are sorted on a vibrating table to remove dry berries, leaf debris and stalks. They then pass to another sorting table for the removal of any grapes that are unripe, damaged or showing signs of rot. The grapes are lightly pressed to avoid the risk of oxidisation. Fermentation is begun slowly and naturally, using native yeasts.
Part of the resulting wine is aged in oak barrels, the remainder in the vat, for 12 months. The two components are blended prior to bottling to achieve a good balance between the fresh acidity of the one and the mellowness of the other.

Keeping properties
This wine is best drunk young, but will keep perfectly well for up to five years.

Tasting notes
The wine has a brilliant golden colour. The nose is rich in floral notes (white blossom).
On the palate, it releases buttery flavours, together with a fine fruity freshness and some distinctive toasty notes.

Food and wine pairing
This Saint-Aubin makes a agreeable aperitif. Alternatively, it goes well with a goat’s cheese salad, or fish in a hollandaise sauce.

Serving temperature
Between 12 and 14°C.
