Saint-Aubin Premier Cru

Les Murgers des Dents de Chien

Tasting Notes

Nose : Pure, cristalline and finely fruity.

Palate : The burst of freshness due to the minerality slowly leaves room for a great complexity where citrous and white flowers aromas blend. The finish is long and sophisticated.

Laying : Drink after two or three years or lay down for seven to nine years depending on the vintages.
