Saint Aubin Blanc, 1Er Cru La Chatenière

Saint Aubin Blanc, 1Er Cru La Chatenire

Ref: A016114

The leading Premier Cru that the Thomas family make is the 1er Cru la Chatenière which is a wine that has a lime-blossom and dried fruit bouquet and a nutty, peachy fruitiness. There is also an intelligent use of oak with 20% being used in an entirely supporting role.

Until the mid-1990’s, the sleepy little village of St. Aubin was rarely visited by the wine-trade as its wines didn’t really have a place on most people’s lists and most of the wine (predominantly red) was sold as Côte de Beaune. Geographically, it is a bit out of the mainstream, just off the N6, up a little valley behind the villages of Chassagne and Puligny. Things changed as the ‘big name’ white burgundies became increasingly expensive and buyers discovered that white St. Aubin made an excellent substitute at a sensible price.

Gérard Thomas took over the domaine from his father in 1982 and has built-up a core of top vineyard sites since then. He is ably assisted by his two daughters, Anne-Sophie (now the winemaker) and Isabelle, producing top class St. Aubin and Meursault Blagny, the latter coming from a tiny parcel of 50 year old vines with an ideal south-facing aspect. The 1er Cru la Chatenière is fruit-driven but with a zingy raciness and plenty of freshness. The Meursault 1er Cru Blagny is rich and stylish with a good follow-though, showing just a touch of new oak.

Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
A fantastic white Burgundy from Jean-Marc Morey, Côte de Beaune, which exhibits a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Doucinello 2011
Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
