"Saint-Aubin is a great white Burgundy appellation to watch. Aside from the fact that Olivier Lamy makes a lot of wine from there, what was once a liability for this village is now its asset. In an ever-changing world the cooler climate of Saint Aubin, with its large combe and valley which bring in cool air from the western forested hills keeps this place more fresh compared to the great appellations that house most of the famous Grand Crus, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet.
Saint-Aubin is also home to slopes that are more steep than a good portion of premier cru white Burgundy sites, which gives these wines the advantage of clarity, tension and less fat, all things that are currently en vogue. A good portion of the premier cru vineyards sit on ground that is more dominated with rock rather than deep clay, which also encourages wines on the more straight and narrow. If you love Burgundy or Chardonnay and are looking for something a little more elegant, this could be a good place to look."
