This blows away my last bottle. So pure. So precise on the nose. A sick sense of richness and also insane minerality. Best aromas on any St. Aubin ever. Deep. This nose has woodsmoke. Confectionary. Super stones. Insane concentration and purity. So refined and classy. Super saline and has that mineral sweetness and intensity. Balance and class that is always there with Brisset. What intensity. Incredible mineral wash on the finish. So so clean. Just a brilliant bottle of wine. Maybe 9.6. 9.5 now.

Nose is dynamite. Meyer lemon. Discreet oak. Floral, wet stones, wet earth, peaches? Superb delineation on the nose between, earth, mineral, flowers and fruit. As it opens more lime pith, more slate? Almost Mosel like. Wow, acid, concentration off the charts. Really young, but so clean, so pure and so long. Also initially closed. What density and what amazing material. Really nice texture and again, this is so mineral driven it’s crazy. Such a wealth of material here.

As it airs some spice develops. This seems really backwards and needs time but also is so so fine. Could be Chassagne. Explosive mineral finish and so earthy. This is as old school as St. Aubin gets. Saline, rocky and earthy. But finish is clipped as a function of its youth but man is this promising.
