Vineyards situation : The commune of Saint Aubin lies at the western fringe of the Côte de Beaune overlooking Auxey Duresses, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay.

Characteristics : The vineyards of Saint Aubin consist of two areas of approximately equal size situated roughly at right angles to each other. One area occupies chalky limestone soils and is exposed to the south and Southeast. In the other area, soils contain a degree of gravel and clay and enjoy a cooler, more easterly exposure.

Wine making : Fermentation takes place in oak barrels, after which they are aged in barrel for 12 months before being bottled.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : The white wines of Saint Aubin are characterised by distinct nuances of hazelnuts and fragrant, peachy fruit not unlike Puligny Montrachet. Maison Louis Jadot yield a stylish wine of medium body and depth with fine
acidic balance and a delicious amalgam of generous, ripe fruit, supple vinosity and gentle oak notes ending in a clean, sustained finish. Batard Montrachet will be a perfect partner with Haute Cuisine : foie gras, starters, charcuteries, fish and white meat with creamed sauce.

Preservation : Saint Aubin white wines combine well with fine cuisine such as creamed fish, flaky pastry, foie gras, white meat and some fairly strong cheeses. It can be kept 5 to 8 years.
