Stephen Brook

Tasting: St. Aubin 2011

 Spicy citric nose, lime, with delicate oak yet retains purity of fruit. Rich, lush, full-bodied, quite concentrated, and all balanced by racy, lemony acidity. The finish has a welcome tang, though it shows a trace of heat. Long.

Jason Haynes

Tasting: St. Aubin 2011

 Quite strong acid, but quite powerful, too. Needs to settle down a touch. Could improve. Fair amount of oak.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: St. Aubin 2011

Fullish lemon yellow, fine expression of summer fruits on the nose and good smoothness and richness on the palate, fruit and acidity all in balance.
