Three parcels, one 35-year-old close to Les Murgers des Dents de Chien. Others are at the same elevation as Chevalier with 60-year-old vines. Very sunny spot. Same exposition as La Chatenière. In the evening very exposed. Particularly calcareous with white soils. It can suffer in hot and, especially, dry summers. The vines shut down. Tank sample. Not as expressive as the Champlots. Bit of chalkiness on the end but less expressive fruit at the moment. Low-key nose but long. Fruit and acid not yet integrated.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2030

From three parcels, Pierre-Yves Colin’s 2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly marries aromas of orange oil and fresh pear with hints of struck match, white flowers and warm bread. Medium to full-bodied, layered and enveloping, it’s the most voluminous of his Saint-Aubins, with racy acids and chalky extract underpinning its ample core of fruit. Concluding with a saline finish, this, too, is promising.
