The second vintage and wow this is stunning. Leaps and bounds better than the 19 and the 19 was a great effort. Nose is buttery and confectionary with stunning mineral depth. Smells almost chevalier or batard like. Hoisted up by its own Batard. Dazzlingly pure and my goodness this is just so ultra refined. Really penetrates my nostrils like the aromas are almost solid objects. Unreal. Palate is deep, rich and bracing. Wow the acidity on this is brilliant with icing on a cake texture and just so refined, classy and long my goodness this is long. So pure and so sappy. Amazingly clean. Just an awesome bottle of St. Aubin. Nose develops wet stones, fresh sea air and lemon drop. The balance here is exceptional. Treacly and elegant. Serious and playful while also being incredibly long. The length here is not to believed. This is one of the finest St. Aubins I’ve ever had. I can’t imagine why this is not a 9.7, but want to see what air can do to this.
Wow the cotton candy confection is just off the charts. Stunning. So clean. So airy. This is what white burgundy is all about. Fruit is coming around. Superb citrus and Meyer lemon. Some lime as well. Rieslingesque. — a month ago

2022/5/20-21. We had this alongside the Sous le Château from the same vintage. Rich yellow. This is the leaner, stonier of the two, with a nice sour-sweet citrus profile. There’s a subtle honied creaminess hiding in the background - less prominent than with the Château, but clearly there, suggesting this is in its prime drinking window. — a month ago

2022/5/20-21, alongside the 2014 Perrieres VV. Compared to the Perrieres, this has a thicker honeyed character, with a bit of tropical fruit (though not excessive). There’s more sweet fruit vs. acid, though again, overall it’s still very well balanced. — a month ago
