Brilliant pale straw colour with a watery hue. Intense white peach, dried honey and crème brulee scents engulf the nostrils followed by some bacon fat, butterscotch and spicy nougat notes. Rich and creamy yet refined the palate is layered with fleshy white peach and dried honey flavours which overlay a subtle crème brulee, nougat, cashew and wet stone back drop. Finishes dry with measured acidity lending freshness to the long finish which has a river stone like feel.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews…..
The first impression on the nose is of caramelized tree fruit and flint, but this Saint-Aubin is still very young. On the palate all the elements we expect for this appellation are there, from the salty minerality to the restrained lemon and crisp pear fruit. Well-structured with excellent freshness for this warm vintage. Only at the long, stony finish do you feel the oak a bit, but these are early days for a wine made to age. Drinkable now, but best from 2024.
