Jean-Claude Boisset Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly 2020
Region: Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France
Bottle size: 75cl
Bright yellow in colour with golden reflections, `En Remilly` has a seductive nose with aromas of citrus fruit, white flowers and sweet spices alongside some subtle smoky notes. On the palate, the flavours are concentrated and layered, supported by a fresh mineral vein. The wine is well-balanced with bright, lifted acidity and a very nice length.
Saint-Aubin is located in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune. 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 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 south-facing slope, only five minutes' walk from Chevalier Montrachet. The winemaker, Grégory Patriat describes this wine as "Puligny and Chassagne in a glass", as it shows characteristics of both wines.
