Saint-Aubin is probably not the best known of the Burgundian appellations. It is in the Côte de Beaune and neighbours Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet. I was very pleased with this particular wine from Pierre-Yves Colin Morey and the 2010 vintage. It has refined and racy acidity and overtones of lemon and cashew. In its drinking prime, the only issue is navigating the great looking, but ultimately annoying wax sealed capsule. Rating: Very Good. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $90. Website: na.
