2017 Domaine Derain Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly
This delicious premier cru Chardonnay is made from vines in the En Remilly lieu dit which lies on the rocky, sunny slopes of Chassagne-Montrachet. The En Remilly climat lies at the southern end of the village of Saint-Aubin and crosses the boundary into Chassagne-Montrachet where it is also a premier cru vineyard with the same exposure and the same rocky limestone soil. This makes these premier cru wines some of the best value in Burgundy. The yield is relatively low at 38 hectolitres per hectare. The wine is both powerful and elegant making it perfect for ageing – however it is also drinking nicely now.
