Tasting: St. Aubin 2011

 Lush oaky apricot nose. Rich, broad, and fleshy, but it’s not flabby and has impressive weight of fruit. There’s some light acidity on the mid-palate though this is not especially structured. So an appealing but forward style. Medium length.

Jason Haynes

Tasting: St. Aubin 2011

 Decent savoury nose, but bit loose and lack in intensity in the mouth. Fair. Bit dull.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: St. Aubin 2011

Fullish yellow green, some florality on the nose and good fruit, clarity and depth, nice minerality and good vineyard expression, good wine with a good future.
