Saint Aubin, Côte De Beaune

Henri Prudhon & Fils

Sur Gamay Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Nose has oxidized yellow apple, pineapple core, peach pit, lemon zest and older, wet oak.

Palate has day old pineapple slice, dried lemon peel, creamy butter, green banana peel, zingy acidity with nice sandstone-like minerals on the medium-long finish.

Seems quite advanced for a 2016 vintage, a nose and (sort of) palate of a wine 6+ years its senior. Our only bottle, likely we could get another, but at ~$50 it's not worth it to us. I did decant for about 90m, based on experience with other 2016 S-A wines, not sure if this was enough time for this bottle, but it is showing improvement with glass time.

At hour 3+ the semi-ripe, tropical fruits are finally making an entrance 👍

En Chevrot Saint Romain Chardonnay 2018

The 2018, while young, blows me away again! How can this only be €20!!! I need to stop writing about it, so it doesn’t appreciate, but damn it’s so good! See previous notes of prior vintages. — 7 days ago

Saint - Romain Chardonnay 2017

Fascinating nose that shows the unreal unique terroir of St. Romain. Lemon drop, herbal, mineral, so distinct. Some ripe fruit. Palate is juicy and clean with terrific purity and freshness. Long, juicy and with an ample texture but great minerality. Lovely savory quality on the finish. Very long, salty and juicy. Terrific now but I sense there is more. Much more. @Delectable Wine its Chardonnay. Thanks. — 16 days ago

Les Vergers Clos Saint-Marc Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Very bright and sappy. Clear lemon, good minerality and a peachy midpalate. Great clarity- still dynamic with a flinty backbone — 25 days ago
