Region/Appellation: Saint-Aubin, Côtes de Beaune, Burgundy, France

Alcohol: 13.5%

Tasting notes

White Saint‐Aubin is the colour of sunshine, with golden highlights whose exact shade varies according to where it is grown and in what year. When young, it combines aromas of white flowers, flint, green almond, and orange‐flower. Richer fragrances come with age: beeswax and honey, marzipan, ambergris, and cinnamon. This is a firm and flattering wine ‐ it becomes fleshier and fuller with time.

This wine is gold flecked with green, and the gold deepens with age.
