Saint-Aubin Blanc 1er Cru, “La Chatenière”
A tiny parcel of about 1/10 of a hectare that sits on a very steep slope above the hamlet of Gamay facing southwest on clay and limestone soil. The vines are quite old (45 years). Effectively, this is a “micro-cuvée” as less than three barrels are produced annually (about 800 bottles); thus, the new oak exposure is highest here (one-third). Perhaps the most classic wine of the appellation … a pure-bred!
