Here is an outstanding 1st Growth Saint-Aubin. We chose it ahead of Clair’s Le Sentier du Clou, Les Champlots and Sous Roche Dumay, which, in other years, have sometimes emerged as the exceptional Cuvées. The wine is assembled 1/3 from the Perrières part of the vineyard, where the vines are 70-80 years old, with 2/3 from Les Frionnes itself (average age 25 years). Green-golden in colour, this shows lemony, fine perfume, very open. The fragrance is maintained throughout tasting, allied with intense, rich fruitiness and a crisp, long finish (for drinking 2021-2024).
