The 2020 Saint-Aubin Charmois 1er Cru has a more reserved, Puligny-like bouquet with light limestone and flinty aromas unfolding in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, just the right amount of bitter lemon that keeps this Saint-Aubin on edge with a lightly spiced finish. The grapes are grown in the Premier Cru named vineyard of Le Charmois, of the Saint-Aubin appellation. Domaine Marc Morey’s philosophy puts great emphasis on working alongside nature, with rigorous debudding and green harvests to ensure that the vine's growth is perfectly balanced. The vineyards are farmed according to "La lutte raisonnée", using sustainable agriculture methods, reducing the use of chemicals in order to respect the land and its environment. The vines are trained according to the Guyot method and are planted in clay and limestone soils. The must began fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures and mid-fermentation it was then transferred into oak casks, 20% of which were new oak. Bâtonnage, or the stirring of the fine lees, took place until malolactic fermentation was complete, adding texture and complexity to the resulting wine. Having spent 10 months in barrel, the wine was then racked, fined and filtered, prior to being bottled. ABV 13.5%
