Où nous trouver ?
Saint-Aubin 1er cru « Les Perrières »


Soil type: clayey-limestone
Location: The plot is to the rear of the estate and faces south.
Age of vines: planted in 1973 and 1975
Grape variety: Pinot noir

Vinification and ageing
The grapes are harvested manually into wooden crates. They are sorted on a vibrating table (to remove dry berries, leaf debris, stalks, etc.), then on a conveyor belt (to remove unripe grapes and grapes affected by rot or other fungal diseases). The sound grapes are pressed to facilitate the extraction of colour and flavours.  
Fermentation is begun slowly, using native yeasts, and continues for between 15 and 20 days. The wine is then aged in barrels for a lengthy period of three years.

Keeping properties
7 to 10 years

Tasting notes
The good breeding of this premier cru wine is immediately apparent. In colour, it is deep, intense red.  The nose is characterised by a complex mix of red fruit aromas.
On the palate, it is elegant, subtle, ethereal, with a lingering mineral finish. Like all great wines, it leaves a very distinctive signature.

Food and wine pairing
For the more adventurous, the fine, delicate texture of this wine might suggest a pairing with fish, but it also goes perfectly with Burgundian cheeses, such as soumaintrain and époisses.

Serving temperature
Between 14 and 16°C
