Product Description:

"Our Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "Murgers des Dents de Chien" has a sparkling appearance with green highlights. It invariably develops very mineral notes which derive from the nature of the soil. In the mouth it is delicate at first, later gaining in intensity. The finish is remarkably rich.

The terroir lies in the southern part of the Saint-Aubin appellation bordering the Puligny-Montrachet appellation and close to the grand cru Montrachet appellation. It comprises 5 parcels, south facing, altitude 340 metres, mid-slope position. Soil very limy. The underlying rock, very near the surface, pushes the ground up into formations called "dents de chien". These Chardonnay vines were planted first on an isolated piece of ground in 1946, with subsequent plantings in 1964, 1972, 1990, and finally 1997. Planting density 10,000 per hectare. Surface area 1.12 ha." -Winery
