Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Limestone and clay
Site : Located between Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet, the village of Saint Aubin blongs to the best "terroirs" for chardonnay. "Les Pitengerets" are among the best Premiers Crus close to the Premiers Crus of Chassagne Montrachet
The Vintage 2003 : An exceptionally early harvest end of August due to an unusual hot summer. Grapes were extremely well mature with high concentration. Very low yields. Grapes had to be cooled down before pressing.
Tasting : Pale gold with green tinges. Aromas of green almond and honey with a subtle hint of vanilla. Great combination of fresh fruit and maturity with mineral notes. It is harmonious and has a long and lingering aftertaste with a good persistency.
Food pairing : Fish in a creamy sauce, white meat and a variety of regional cheeses, in particular Époisses, Roquefort and Munster.
