Saint-Aubin Compendium 2017
91 points, “A very fine Saint-Aubin. Recommended.” – Vinous
Compendium has been created from six different lieu-dits. Use of various parcels gives this immense complexity. Displaying intense aromatics of white flowers, beeswax and sea salt, the palate then unfurls into crunchy green apple, marmalade, greengage and chalk. Wonderfully precise, this wine demonstrates why those-in-the-know are getting so excited about Saint-Aubin.
With respected critics such as Jasper Morris reporting that 2017 is “a delicious vintage for white Burgundy”, Allen Meadows saying that “the 2017s deserve a place in your cellars”, and Neal Martin calling it a “modern classic vintage” with some “quite brilliant whites”; this is a vintage you need to be all over.
Saint Aubin used to be off the beaten track, but now it’s fast-becoming hot property in Burgundy. Here you’ll find Joseph Colin, son of Marc Colin who was one of the early pioneers in this area. In 2016 Joseph left the family business to branch out on his own, taking with him some plots in incredible locations including Chassagne-Montrachet. 2017 is his first full vintage and with a wealth of experience and confidence, he looks like one of Burgundy’s bright young sparks to watch. But don’t just take our word for it, Wine Advocate “encourage readers to acquaint themselves with his wines” too.£5.33 per 100.00ml
