2014 Domaine Philippe Colin St-Aubin 1er Cru "Charmois"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Saint Aubin 1er Cru le Charmois, which sees a modest 5% new wood, has a crisp and slightly floral bouquet, just a hint of white peach coming through flanked by vanilla. The palate is fresh on the entry, very fine line of acidity, very tensile with a refined, quite sophisticated, Puligny-like finish. This is an excellent Saint Aubin from the domaine. (NM)
Orange zest dominates the nose. Thick and smooth but fresh thanks to harmonious acidity and an underlying mineral piquancy. Fine-grained, stylish wine with citrus and rock flavors dominating. (ST)
Although the domaine is mainly centered on Chassagne-Montrachet, neighboring Saint-Aubin is hardly far. This ripe, yellow and citrus-fruit-flavored wine is already delicious. Touches of toast from wood aging along with balanced acidity give it both crispness and richness. (RV)
Apple, peach and citrus notes are shaded by sweet baking spices in this sleek, crunchy white. Finishes with a mouthwatering tang. (BS)
Allen Meadows - Burghound
This is aromatically similar to the Montagny save for the fact that the aromas are slightly riper. Otherwise there is a seductively caressing texture to the round and plump flavors that exude a hint of salinity on the balanced and appealingly lingering finale that offers good if not exceptional depth.
