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.
The Chardonnay is fermented in 228 litre oak barrels, 20% new and aged for 10 months on the fine lees. The the wine is blended, fined and bottled after a light filtration. It is bright in appearance and intense on the nose. The palate is pleasingly round and fat with intense stone fruit flavours.
