St Aubin’s finest premier cru vineyard. It is essentially a continuation of Montrachet/Chevalier Montrachet as the contours swing around to the west. It has a steep slope with a rocky soil which produces wines of mineral intensity. The 2018 Saint-Aubin En Remilly 1er Cru comes from vines planted in 1997 and is matured in 30% new oak. The floral bouquet reveals scents of cold limestone percolating through the malic fruit. The palate is quite rounded on the entry, offering notes of orange pith and lime. It has a slightly powdery texture, especially toward the finish, and good weight and persistence. Maybe I err toward the Puligny Charmes, which seems to demonstrate more mineralité at the moment. 89-90 Points Neal Martin, vinous.com
