Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "Les Charmois" 2011, Paul Pillot
Tasted at the Justerini & Brooks annual Burgundy tasting this premier cru Saint-Aubin produced by Domaine Paul Pillot from the unpredictable 2011 vintage immediately strums the aromatic strings of green apple, lime and pear. Very refreshing and there is good depth to the nose. Lovely fresh fruit, rondeur and a slightly awkward dandelion and asperges vertes flavour at the end. One wonders how this will resolve itself. Scores 19-22 / 30 for a Saint-Aubin premier cru.
