Saint Aubin 1er Cru “En Remilly”

Saint Aubin 1er Cru “En Remilly” bottle

The vines are, for the most part, planted on the right side of the wide valley that winds its way up toward La Rochepot. The area of appellation is divided between two separate hills: the Montagne de Savoie, which marks the end of the Côte d’Or, and the Montagne du Ban lying perpendicular to it.

“En Remilly” is located on the latter slope and this single vineyard produces wines that are very similar in quality to wines from Puligny and Chassagne. More than 160 acres of Saint-Aubin’s vineyards are classified as Premier Cru.

Grégory Patriat increasingly uses 500-litre oak barrels to age his white wines so that the wood is less dominant. This 'baby Montrachet' , as he puts it, from this celebrated premier cru site has a winning combination of concentration and minerality. It's leesy and textured, with understated cinnamon spice.
  • Winemaking

    Aged for 16 months with no racking or stirring to bring out all of this wine's mineral touch. A proportion of 30% new French oak barrels that had been toasted at low temperatures for a long time to impart a subtle, delicate touch of oak were used.

  • Nose

    Very delicate with aromas of white flowers and a discreet touch of oak.

  • Palate

    Very soft with a great deal of mineral flavors.
