Saint-Aubin Les Pitengerets
1er Cru

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Limestone and clay

Site : Located between the villages of Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet is the village of Saint Aubin. "Les Pitengerets" is among one of the best Premiers Crus, located close to the famous Chassagne Montrachet.

The Vintage 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions. Aging in oak during 15 months

Tasting : Bright gold colour. Intense aromas of pale fleshed fruit (apple) and ripe apricot mixed with fresh honey with a hint of vanilla. Complex and well crafted. Tight texture. Very pure fruit. Well-defined minerality. Delicate oak note. Generous with a good persistence.

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