The grapes are harvested by hand and then directly pressed in a pneumatic press. Alcoholic fermentation takes place entirely in French oak barrels, of which 40% are new. The lees are stirred (bâtonnage) occasionally during ageing, which lasts 13 months.

At the heart of the Côte des Blancs, between Chassagne and Puligny and in the immediate vicinity of Montrachet, Saint-Aubin is a village that produces lesser known wines offering excellent value for money.

St Aubin is spread over two different hill ranges: one is the Montagne de Savoie, which marks the end of the Côte d'Or, the other is the Montagne du Ban which runs perpendicular to it. Sur Gamay sits on the slopes of the latter. Only 65 hectares of the vineyards located here are rated as Premier Cru. Viticulture is careful and intense, with old vines and low yields giving concentration; organic methods of farming, without fertilisers or pesticides and positioning the leaves and shoots of the vine so that maximum exposure to the sun is possible.

Lovely golden hue. Delicate and floral on the nose, revealing aromas of pears. Supple and pleasant on entry to the palate. Straightforward and well-balanced mid-palate, lovely minerality and lively mouth-watering acidity, all enhanced by hints of toast on the finish.

Good with fish, shellfish, grilled meat, fruit desserts.
