INSIDE BURGUNDY JASPER MORRIS 2021
Clear fresh yellow. Mid lemon yellow with generous ripe fruit on the nose. Fully ripe as denoted by the little touch of spice. This is a powerful, big volume Saint-Aubin with excellent follow through, almost some tannins.
The 2017 Saint-Aubin En Remilly 1er Cru displays more ripeness and fruit concentration than Olivier Lamy’s tasted alongside, offering touches of passion fruit and traces of almond shavings. The palate has an attractive spiciness on the entry, then turns quite malic and stern in style, delivering good acidity and a saline finish. A decent, no-frills Saint-Aubin that needs another 12 months in bottle.

Clear pale colour, a fraction of reduction but very mild. This starts more slowly but the weight of fruit comes from behind. fine intensity, ripe apple but with a good steely line behind.
BURGUNDY REPORT BILL NANSEN 2018
The last bottled wine that we taste, the malo was done rather quickly hence this was bottled – Deep, a faintly biscuit nose. Gas, but less, wide, melting, beautiful clarity and super, intensity. Waves of deliciousness spread across the finishing palate – simply super fine here. Excellent!
St Aubin Remilly still tight and coiled like a spring, this is a wine with lots of power and intensity in reserve. Aged in 20% new wood, it’s an impressive interpretation of one of St-Aubin’s two most celebrated premiers crus, with mineral-edged acidity, some vanilla spice and a creamy mid-palate.
