Domaine Larue Saint Aubin En Montceau (750ml)
In 1946, Guy Larue founded his family’s estate in the small hamlet of Gamay, in Saint-Aubin, located just behind the famed Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet slope. Much like its neighbor Chassagne-Montrachet to the south, Saint-Aubin was historically known for red wine, though the Larues have specialized in the great white crus of Saint-Aubin.
Crafted from Chardonnay coming from both old vines (1963) and more recently planted vines (2000) growing on clay / limestone soil. Primary fermentation in barrel (25% new) and ageing sur-lie for 10-12 months with occasional stirring makes for a rich, creamy, complex wine.
