Very smart white Burgundy from a vineyard that lies alongside a Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru vineyard


Tasting Notes

Burgundy aficionados looking for value often turn to Saint Aubin, because it shares many of the features of Chassagne-Montrachet, but burns a smaller hole in the pocket. Saint Aubin's Premier Cru 'Les Charmois' vineyard lies alongside Chassgne-Montrachet's Premier Cru 'Les Chaumees' vineyard, so this is a classic example of how a bit of sleuthing can uncover a great value alternative to Chassagne-Montrachet. In fact, Philippe Colin's Chassgne-Montrachet's Premier Cru 'Les Chaumees' 2008 came top of Decanter Magazine's Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 2008 tasting, so this neighbouring wine is an even better deal than it might first appear. The wine is medium lemon gold in colour and full of sprightly lemon, orange and apricot flavours, whipped into shape by some lively acidity and a perfectly-judged seam of nutty oak weaving its way amidst the fruit. Drink now-2014.
