This family estate seems to get better and better with each generation that takes the helm. A wonderful Saint Aubin that balances vibrant, almost tropical fruit flavours with some well integrated oak courtesy of 11 months ageing. Rounded and elegant on the palate with a long, balanced finish, this is terrific white burgundy.
