St Aubin, 1er Cru, En Remilly

Contains Sulphites.

Appellation: St-Aubin

A village in the Côte de Beaune tucked around the corner of the main Côte west of Chassagne. The appellation borders both Chassagne and Puligny, producing two-thirds red wine however the whites, though a little scarcer, are as highly thought of if not more so. A high proportion, two-thirds, of the vineyard area is designated premier cru, the most famous being En Remilly and Les Murgers Dents de Chien, these form part of a band of south west-facing vineyards between the borders of Chassagne, Pulginy and the hamlet of Gamay (which is also part of the St Aubin appellation.) The rest of the vineyards are south south east facing but are further up the valley where it is cooler. The reds are light but in good vintages offers lots of very seductive, pretty fruit, soft tannins and can be excellent value for money. The whites are described as bit like baby Chassagnes, they are medium bodied not as cmplex but offer an abundance of racy fruit, these can certainly be some of the best value whites in Burgundy.
