Saint-Aubin Les Pitengerets
1er Cru

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Limestone and clay

Site : Located between Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet, the village of Saint Aubin belongs to the best "terroirs" for chardonnay. "Les Pitengerets" are among the best Premiers Crus close to the Premiers Crus of Chassagne Montrachet

The Vintage 2004 : Harvest took place at the end of September after a cool and humid Summer with short periods of very hot weather. The "tri", sorting of the grapes was drastic to keep only the very ripe berries. The combination of strictly controlled yields, a good acidity and a meticulous vinification process results in a great vintage for white Burgundy. Aging in casks during 12 months.

Tasting : Pale gold with green tinges. Aromas of green almond and honey with a subtle hint of vanilla. Well-structured and well-balanced with an outstanding aromatic complexity enhanced by an elegant oak note. Long aftertaste. Gold Medal - Concours Général Agricole Paris 2006

Food pairing : Foie gras, seafood, fish in a creamy sauce, white meat and a variety of regional cheeses, in particular Époisses, Roquefort and Munster.
