A seriously good Chardonnay from a Premier Cru in one of Burgundy's most under-rated spots. Global warming is bringing Saint-Aubin the consistent ripeness of Meaurasult and Montrachet. The exceptional Charmois vineyard is in fact located on the border of the neighbouring Chassagne-Montrachet, on the slopes of Mont-Rachet itself. Bearing the mark of such a superb location, this wine offers exceptional depth and quality for the price!

Its Origins

In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.

What The Critics Say

90-92/100 Vinous, Neil Martin

"The 2017 Saint-Aubin Charmois 1er Cru has a taut, stony bouquet à la Village Cru, quite direct and focused, with touches of Granny Smith apple and fresh Conference pear developing in the glass. The palate is well balanced and saline in the mouth, with good weight. It builds toward quite a concentrated finish – again, quite saline –where the spiciness comes through more strongly, so that the mouth tingles with the discreet lemongrass note on the aftertaste. Very fine." Drink 2020 - 2030
