Nestling in the valley above Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet, lie the twovillages of Gamay and Saint Aubin. Sharing the Saint-Aubin appellation, they are immensely proud of their proximity to Le Montrachet itself. After
extensive tasting we discovered Sylvain Langoureau with the very style we were looking for – rich, generous, subtly-oaked, well-balanced acidity.
Grape: 100% Chardonnay
Vineyard & Vinification Note:
Environment: very good conditions allowing good maturity
Soil: Clay-limestone with white marl and rocks subsoil.
Age of vines: 60 years
Density: 55 hectares
Vinification and ageing: After pressing, the musts are stabilised
during 12 to 24 hours. Fermentation in barrels, 25% new oak. Ageing for
10 months then fining in barrels and bottling after a light filtration.
At first, the nose is discreet. It then opens up very quickly, a sign of good
ageing potential. By contrast the palate is lively, ample, racy and very
long. Can be kept up to 7 years
Pairs beautifully with pan-fried foie gras, fish (sole, monkfish), shellfish, poultry and cheese.
