Saint-Aubin Blanc 1er Cru, “Les Castets”
This parcel is a mere 1/3 of an hectare of vines planted two decades ago. The vineyard is in the southwestern part of the village on a hillside slope overlooking the town and facing east-southeast. Elevage in barrel for the Les Castets is twelve months with about 25% new oak being used during that period. The wine is particularly rich and fruity perhaps without some of the complexity of the cuvées from parcels situated farther east.
