Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Champlots Blanc

2016

More limestone in the soil compared to Charmois. Native yeast fermentation in stainless steel. Aged in French oak barrels for 24 months, less than 15% new. 30-45 g/L sulfur added at bottling. Corpulent, lemon curd with zippy acidity.

89-91 points
"A more expressive nose offers up notes of petrol, floral and poached white orchard fruit aromas. There is good concentration and very good vibrancy to the delicious and solidly intense medium weight flavors that possess lovely complexity on the attractively dry, clean, balanced and persistent if slightly rustic finish"
