1er Cru Sur Gamay
With its prestigious Premiers Crus, Saint-Aubin in the Côte de Beaune holds a place among the great wines; no doubt the select ‘Côte des Blancs’ coterie will soon be expanding to four.
The vines are mainly planted on the right flank of the broad combe which meanders towards La Rochepot. The appellation area is spread over two different massifs: one, the Montagne de Savoie, which ends the Côte d'Or and the other with the mountain of Ban which is perpendicular.
This second slope houses the climate "Sur Gamay", located near the appellation of Puligny-Montrachet. The slope is strong and the vine is oriented to the east. The climate is called "Gamay", causing some confusion with the variety of the same name, because the plot is located above the hamlet called Gamay (part of Saint-Aubin). The plot is also called "Sous Roche Dumay" which is close to the climat "Les Murgers des Dents de Chien".
