2016 Domaine Sylvain Langoureau St. Aubin

SKU #1386041 Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A pretty and layered nose combines notes of apple, pear and acacia blossom. The rich, round and succulent medium weight flavors offer a seductive mouth feel along with an appealing minerality on the attractively dry, vibrant and focused finale. This should drink well young.  (6/2018)

The wines of Saint Aubin are some of the best values in Burgundy. The slopes here are quite steep and the vines sit at high elevation so year-round temperatures in the vineyards are generally lower than other parts of the region - as a result the wines can have great precision and purity. A luscious medley of stone fruit, white flower and candied Meyer lemon aromas followed by vibrant citrus, a tinge of oak and uplifiting acidity make this wine a delight to drink. Sylvain and Nathalie Langoureau have represented the region beautifully with this well-crafted Chardonnay.

For those looking for a great white Burgundy value at the village level, look no further! Many a Burgundy lover will tell you that St. Aubin is a great value, since it is right next to Chassagne Montrachet, but does not command those prices. Unfortunately in the last few years the prices of St. Aubin have crept up as well. But this is a stellar deal--the wine has everything you want in a great white Burgundy from the area: stony, flinty minerality, pretty, creamy texture and clean orchard fruit. Very well done!

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
