I was very interested in this wine because I had always associated Saint Aubin with the Chardonnay grape vs the Pinot Noir grape. I really like this wine. It was on the lighter and brighter side but was very drinkable and delicious. Before I knew it, I was enjoying my third glass (oops!). I was home so there was no problem. I think the guys at crush pushed the wine (politely), I bought two bottles and I’m glad I did. I’d recommend trying this red St Aubin for yourself. Delightful. Enjoy! — 14 days ago
Clear yellow straw in the glass. The nose is warm and inviting after around or so with lemon and flowers for days. The oak is wonderful and so are the slight apple notes. Butterscotch and rose petals with sea spray. A lovely, lovely bouquet.
So, so very young but such a nice Burgundy. Nice acid and mouthfeel. Energetic as all get out and very refined. After plenty of air and time, it changes pretty drastically. Starts off a tad creamy but really becomes a beautiful bouncing ball of vitality and vigor. Outstanding and under the radar, stock up on these.

Bien fait! Légère amertume en finale — 10 months ago
Bright lemon color with a bit of reduction on the nose that blows off after a few minutes. Golden apple, pear, lemon, struck match, flint, orange peel, acacia, very light oak impressions of vanilla and clove. Very good balance of flavor intensity with the medium plus acidity and 13.5% alcohol. A nice, seamless package. A bit more intensity would be welcome and will likely develop over time. Medium plus finish — 5 months ago
Nice premier cru from St Aubin with just over 10 years age. Was honestly hoping for a bit more overall but this was an excellent pairing with some blackened sea bass. Not okay at all, definite green minerality characteristic that is hard for me to describe. Medium minus acid and the finish isn’t quite all encompassing. But still a nice wine. — 2 years ago

We first tried a bottle of Celestins in a restaurant in Gigondas some years ago, and for me it was a WOW Wine. Had this latest bottle on Sunday with Roast Pork. Medicinal to begin with which blew off. Barnyard aromas - horse manure. In hindsight this could’ve been Brett but the overall impression and tasting was impressive and memorable. Glad I have 3 left. Showing a medium to full bodied palate. This is textbook CdP in the old school genre. The tannins are silky and sexy - a liquorice note together with saddle leather. Henri Bonneau passed away in 2016 and the wine making is now carried out by his son, Marcel. A visit to his archaic cellars was keenly sought after and rarely granted. Mould all over the walls, rickety stairs light bulbs dangling from the ceiling and a floor which stuck to the soles of your shoes was how one visitor described his experience in the cellar. Nevertheless this is a CdP up there with Rayas and the top Cuvée from Beaucastel. The blend is usually 90% Grenache with the balance made up of around 4 or 5 different varieties. — 7 months ago
