Description

Brothers Vincent and Philippe are gently modernising this Saint Aubin domaine, which was founded in 1921. They follow in the footsteps of their father, Gérard, who inherited the estate from his father Henri. The brothers have vineyard holdings in Saint-Aubin, Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet, which total 14.5 hectares.

Located in the hills to the south-east of the village, this wine comes from several plots of vines 10 to 60 years old. The soil is clay and limestone, with south-south-east exposure. A full-bodied, generous and precise wine. Easily accessible, it is the perfect accompaniment for aperitifs or a simple cooked meat (charcuterie), poultry or fish dishes.

The nose has an appealing smoky, toasty oak character, which blends well with ripe citrus fruits and a touch of white peach. The palate is crisp and refreshing, with notes of lemon and lime, medium weight and a smoky, mineral finish.
