Revisiting an appellation whose wine I haven’t tried for years: Saint Aubin. The Pitangeret lieu-dit straddles the border with Chassagne, overlooking en Remilly and is classified a premier Cru. This 2017 by Dom. Paul Pillot (headed up by the young Thierry) is a commendable wine from an exciting producer. The wax seal makes for an attractive bottle.

Burnt butter and lime peel dominate the nose, with toasty oak, wet stone, struck match and after two hours’ air a little toffee.

The palate is gorgeous, very taut, direct and vibrant, with a juicy core of lime juice, granny Smith apple, Meyer lemon, finishing with medium length and a touch of vanilla. At around £35, this is a good value Burg that I’ll look out for again.

Delicious. Minerality, freshness, pair, lemon zest, candied apple. Young for now.

Great bottle well worth the asking price that is not cheap for a St-Aubin. White orchard fruit, minerlitity and a touch of roundness, fresh and classy, elegant and so well balanced. The bottle emptied itself in a flash. Great stuff.

Quel délice. Fruits blancs, fraîcheur, minéralité, une touche de richesse, quelle classe et élégance aussi, très équilibré et savoureux, la bouteille s’est vidée en le temps de le dire. 91-92

Great Burgundy from St. Aubin. Nice dry palate, with moderate minerality.
