"The 2017 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru La Chatenière exhibits aromas of lime and lemon zest, crushed rock and white flowers, followed by a bright and incisive medium to full body, with a nicely concentrated core of crunchy fruit and a long, penetrating finish. This is a very promising Chatenière."
45+ year old vines, Very steep slope, Reddish clay with lots of limestone (20cm of dirt), Aged in barrel (25% new). Joseph says, "I like to think of La Chatenière as sharp, edgy and racy with a sleek saline feel that is 'nervy' as the French like to say. This is a vineyard with angles and where a tiny layer of dirt hides the immense bedrock below. Like the site, the wine gives no shelter." It is a wine with no make-up, just a bracing and ruggedly handsome beauty that makes many of the wines in this village so irresistible and are the envy of every overripe, oaky and buttery Chardonnay you like to make fun of.
