A “murger” is a pile of stones that a vigneron creates when clearing a patch of land in order to plant it. This is a strenuous task, made more disagreeable when the stones are as sharp as a dog’s teeth, as experienced here. This is one of the village’s top Premier Cru sites, lying close to the Montrachet hillside. It is thanks to plantation of sites such as this, by the Clair family and other growers, that Saint-Aubin has progressed so much in recent years. One very old vine-block, aged 80 years, has other vineyards beside it, aged 20 and 35 years. All benefit from excellent exposure to the sun, gentle breezes and free-draining soils. Colour is medium-deep lemon-gold, aromas ripe and rich, palate broadly built, with opulent aftertaste (for drinking 2022-2027+).
