Tasting: St. Aubin 2011

 Oaky buttery nose, rather heavy. Rich and florid, fruity but heavy-handed, with enough acidity to lift the mid-palate but not quite enough zest to carry the wine through to the finish. But there’s no lack of fruit here.

 Very limey nose. Some stone. Strong acid throughout. Good drive. Some oak spice but enough fruit to carry it, just. Quite grown up. Stylish.

Tasting: St. Aubin 2011

Lemon yellow, quite robust and rich yellow fruits, a certain sweetness is there which magnifies the wine, but also leaves it a bit flat on the finish.
