"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
"Wines from Larue possess purity, energy, and an invariable minerality derived from the predominant limestone soils of Saint-Aubin. The Larues are meticulous and precise in all aspects of winegrowing and winemaking and their wines reflect these qualities. These wonderful white Burgundies have the additional benefit of being approachable young, although they are tightly wound and can always benefit from a few extra years of bottle age.
The Larue holdings are spread between the two villages of Saint-Aubin and Puligny-Montrachet, with a large concentration at the southern portion of the Saint-Aubin appellation. These holdings include seven premier cru climats, on south, southeast, and southwestern facing slopes, grown on variations of clay soils with a high concentration of limestone. Combined with the varying grades of slope and elevations ranging from 800 to 1200 feet, the Larues have a truly magical diversity within Saint-Aubin, one of the under-rated gems of Burgundy. The domaine's premier cru vineyard in Puligny-Montrachet, La Garenne, sits at a high altitude in the Hameau de Blagny, bordering Meursault.
Their largest parcel, Saint-Aubin premier cru “Murgers des Dents de Chien,” shares its name with the Dents de Chien lieu-dit of Le Montrachet that is right around the corner and is the domaine's prized vineyard, capable of producing wine that can age and improve in the bottle for decades." -Importer
