Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Les Murgiers Des Dents de Chien 2013Chardonnay
Another new vineyard of the domaine (0.35 ha) on the rocky side of Montrachet, with marl and iron red soil that give this wine a pleasant aromatic breadth supported by its mineral freshness. Vinification and maturation in barriques of third and fourth passage. It is neither filtered nor clarified, in the glass it is opaque straw yellow and smells of white flowers, green apple and candied orange. The liquid glides nimbly over the palate thanks to a remarkable dose of vibrant acidity.
Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Sur Le Sentier Du Clou 2013Chardonnay
New vineyard of the domaine. On this small parcel of 0.20 ha we find the soil type of Saint-Aubin Village. The full southern exposure of half the hill allows the expression of liveliness and aromatic richness. Vinification and maturation in barriques of third and fourth passage. It is neither filtered nor clarified, in the glass it is opaque straw yellow and smells of white flowers, green apple and candied orange. The liquid glides nimbly over the palate thanks to a remarkable dose of vibrant acidity.
Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Les Combes Au Sud 2014Chardonnay
From a small piece of vineyard recently acquired by the domaine: just 0.20 ha of red iron soils - located at the bottom of the Chassagne-Montrachet hills - that complement the structure of the chardonnay giving the wine structure and elegance in great balance. Slightly buttery and complex, it reflects Dominique's style with an infectious drinkability.
Saint-Aubin Premier Cru En Remilly 2015Chardonnay
Fermentation in wood that lasts from one to eight months. The wine remains in wood on the lees until the following harvest. Powerful and elegant at the same time. Rocky and mineral
Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Le Puits 2018Pinot Noir
Microscopic vineyard of 0.12 ha located at the top of the village of Saint-Aubin. Here we have the same soil as Saint-Aubin "Le Ban" with a south-eastern exposure, from which we produce very delicious, ripe and delicate Burgundy wines.
Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Blanc 2019, Chardonnay
Le uve provengono da due Premier Cru di Saint-Aubin, Sur La Velle e Les Combes au Sud, vinificate insieme nel 2019 a causa delle gelate. Pressatura diretta del grappolo intero, poi in barrique, per svolgere dapprima le fermentazioni, alcolica e malolattica, ed affinare per oltre un anno sulle proprie fecce fini, in seconda battuta. Complesso l’olfatto con fiori bianchi di campo, poi frutta fresca come Mela Golden e Banana acerba, ancora Anice e Tè verde, Alloro ed alga Nori, sul finire minerale. In bcoca è cremoso, fresco, dinamico e strutturato, sapido ed elegante, parecchio lungo

Saint Aubin (France)
Dominique Derain he's a bigwig from the Hautes Cotes de Beaune.
In 1988 he arrived as a cooper, now retired, and is considered a real Burgundy guru.
His consultations are in demand and expensive.
At the end of the 80's he bought the estate near Saint-Aubin, his idea of viticulture has always been biodynamics. Today he passed his property to Julien Altaber e Carole Schwabwhile continuing to participate in operations in the vineyard and in the cellar.
Dominique's wines are oxymorons in the bottle, coexisting with elegance and that sense of rusticity so dear to the wines of this area.
This is thin, slender, ethereal and delicate.often difficult to grasp in all their grandeur by those who "take their first steps" with Pinot Noir.
Great wines, however, can be recognized by one thing: the bottle you just uncorked is already magically finished and you immediately begin to feel nostalgic for it.
Derain is one of the pioneers of quality European-style winemaking in Chile, where he opened the winery of the same name, in Casablanca Valleybut this is another story
