The 2015 Saint Aubin la Fontenotte, which sees a maximum 10% new oak and 30% aged in oak foudres, has a lovely pine needle, citrus fruit and nectarine-scented bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is well balanced with judicious use of oak that lends this Saint Aubin hints of brioche and vanilla without impeding upon the terroir expression. After a couple of minutes, I noticed an oyster shell tincture developing back on the aromatics. This is an intriguing Saint Aubin that probably touches premier cru quality. (NM)
Fresh pear and citrus-inflected aromas introduce beautifully well-detailed and vibrant flavors that possess good richness but no more complexity than the Bourgogne on the slightly firmer finish. Even so, this should drink well with only a year or two after its release.
