An ode to Brigitte Bardot, a Rare & Exclusive bottle for collectors alike. 

Appellation: AOC Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Clos du Château - MONOPOLE

Vineyard: The plot of 1er Cru vines covers 1.1 hectares and lies in the hollow of acomb in the heart of Saint-Aubin, just in front of the Château. The altitude of the
vineyard ranges between 360 and 385 metres, the slopes are south-east facing thus
the vines are ideally orientated.

Soil: The analysis of the soil reveals a high pebble content, resulting in very good
drainage. Added to this, we have soils with strong organic activity and this bestows
the wines with remarkable aromatic character.

Harvesting: Manual harvest, carried out on the 10th of September 2015.

Winemaking: Following harvesting, the whole crop is pressed as bunches using a
pneumatic press. The must then undergoes static clarification at 12°C for a period
of about 24 hours before going into French oak barrels for fermentation. Both
alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are carried out in the barrel, 20% of the
barrels are new oak. The resulting wine is matured on the lees for a further 16
months.

Tasting Notes: Greenish-gold colour with silver glints. The bouquet is very fine,
revealing spicy notes and a touch of lemon. In the mouth, it has impressive tension
and energy that lead to a mouth-watering yet extremely elegant finish.
Serve at 55 degrees F.

Wine & Food Pairing: This Saint Aubin 1er Cru will bring out the best in a
vegetable risotto, a fillet of sole in cream sauce or a dish of mixed sushi.

*Rare & Limited* To own this bottle you will have to purchase a minimum of 4 bottles.
