2019 Prosper Maufoux Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Clos du Château
Located 18 km southeast of Beaune, this 1er cru is located below the Château de Saint-Aubin, nestled in the hollow of a combe. This climate benefits from the colluviums on the valley floor, which provide significant drainage to the vineyard. The vines were planted in 1981 and 1999 facing south.
Immediately after the manual harvest, the grapes are pressed in whole bunches in a pneumatic press and then the juice is allowed to settle statically for 24 hours at 12°C. The must is then placed directly into barrels where the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are carried out. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, of which 20% are new barrels.
The Prosper Maufoux Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Clos du Château has a green-gold color in the glass with bright reflections and a salty, slightly toasted nose with lemon aromas and brioche. On the palate, this energetic wine reveals a beautiful balance and notes of vanilla. This delicious Saint Aubin is recommended with grilled turbot with citrus peel.
