Saint-Aubin is a village appellation in the Côte de Beaune. With its prestigious Premiers Crus, Saint-Aubin hold a place among the Great Wines. The area of appellation covers 112,95 ha for white grapes (of which 83,79 ha are Premier Cru).
The vines are mainly planted on the right flack of the wide coomb which snakes its way up towards La Rochepot. The appellation area is spread over two different hill ranges: one is the Montagne de Savoie, which delimits the end of the Côte d’Or, and the other is the Montagne du Ban perpendicular to it.
Saint-Aubin is the colour of sunshine, with golden highlights whose exact shade varies according to where it is grown and in what year. When young, it combines aromas of white flowers, flint, green almond, and orangeflower. Richer fragrances come with age: beeswax and honey, marzipan, ambergris, and cinnamon. This is a firm and flattering wine - a bit sharp to start with but which becomes fleshier and fuller with time. This is a wine with real breeding.
ts nobility and distinction derives from a subtle balance between elegant freshness and a rich but not excessive unctuousness which gives it great fluidity in the mouth. With a wine like this, firm-textured fish and grilled or steamed crustaceans would be at ease. It would also make a perfect finishing touch to dense-fleshed poultry.
