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 Blanc En Vesvau 2015Chardonnay
From a vineyard planted in 1987 on clay-limestone soil. Fermented in wood for one to eight months. The wine remains in wood on the lees until the following harvest. On the nose white flowers and citrus fruits, accompanied by notes of hazelnut. Fruity and mineral taste.
Saint-Aubin Premier Cru En Remilly 2014Chardonnay
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
Bourgogne Blanc 2018Chardonnay
From a very young vineyard that had as its first harvest just 2017 located in Puligny Montrachet. The grapes are pressed directly in fibreglass where fermentation takes place. Matures for 6 months in the same containers. Yellow fruit and freshness, from a vineyard we will hear about in the future.
Saint Aubin Premier Cru Blanc 2019Chardonnay
The grapes come from two Premier Cru of Saint-Aubin, Sur La Velle and Les Combes au Sud, vinified together in 2019 due to frost. Direct pressing of the whole bunch, then in barrels, to carry out the fermentations, alcoholic and malolactic, first, and age for over a year on its fine lees, second. The nose is complex with white wild flowers, then fresh fruit such as Golden Apple and unripe Banana, more Aniseed and Green Tea, Laurel and Nori seaweed, and finally mineral. In the mouth it is creamy, fresh, dynamic and structured, savoury and elegant, quite long.

Saint Aubin (France)
Dominique Derain he's a bigwig at Hautes Cotes de Beaune.
He arrived in 1988 as a cooper, and then decided to start producing wine, with a biodynamic approach, on his estate near Saint-Aubin.
Today he passed his property to Julien Altaber and Carole Schwabwhile still participating in operations in the vineyard and in the cellar.
It is considered one of the Burgundy guru and his consultations are in high demand.
Dominique produces wines that, oxymoron in the bottle, manage to be of boundless elegance but at the same time rustic.
Subtle, slender, ethereal and delicate, wines that are often not fully appreciated by those who are 'taking their first steps' with Pinot Noir. Great wines, however, can be recognized by one thing: the bottle that has just been uncorked is already magically finished and you immediately begin to feel nostalgic for it...
He also started winemaking in Chile, but this is another story
