Jean-Claude Boisset - Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Sur Gamay 2018
Jean-Claude Boisset Description
Origin: The vines are mainly planted on the right flank of the broad combe which meanders towards La Rochepot. The appellation area is spread over two different massifs: one, the Montagne de Savoie, which ends the Côte d'Or and the other with the mountain of Ban which is perpendicular. This second slope houses the climate "Sur Gamay", located near the appellation of Puligny-Montrachet. The slope is strong and the vine is oriented to the east. The climate is called "Gamay", causing some confusion with the variety of the same name, because the plot is located above the hamlet called Gamay (part of Saint-Aubin). The plot is also called "Sous Roche Dumay" which is close to the climat "Les Murgers des Dents de Chien".
Tasting notes: 100 % Chardonnay. The color is bright yellow with golden reflections. The distinguished nose will seduce you with its aromas of yellow fruits, associated with some notes of pears and brioche notes. On the palate, the wine is smooth and elegant, revealing rather buttery notes and a finish on freshness.
Ageing: Maturation: aged for 14 months with no racking or stirring to bring out all of this wine’s minerality. 30% new French oak barrels.
Barrels: Oak of French origin toasted at low temperatures for a long time to impart a subtle, delicate touch of oak were used.
