2019 De Montille Saint Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly

Posted by Ian McFadden

Saint Aubin's 1er Cru En Remilly is a go-to for many Burgundy fanatics. 

The site pulls in everyone from collectors to value seekers. Not many other places offer white Burgundies at this level for this price. After all, En Remilly sits just behind the Grand Cru, Le Montrachet. 

Along with Lamy and Colin-Morey, De Montille produces one of the great examples of En Remilly.

Compared to the En Remilly from Lamy and Colin-Morey, De Montille maintains a decidedly lower profile. It's a shame because De Montille produces a great example of En Remilly. The upside is that it translates to some serious value. 

De Montille's range is dizzying, covering top sites for white and red Burgundy. While more famous for their red Burgundies, their Corton-Charlemagne, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets, and Saint Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly are some of the great, unsung white Burgundies. 

Their 2019 whites are stunning. The 2019 1er Cru En Remilly is a pristine expression of white Burgundy. It combines a stony intensity with an incredible balance. The wine boasts a quiet, unfolding, nuanced complexity that's fascinating. 

We bought every bottle that we could get our hands on. With that said, this is a modest parcel. Based on the strong response to previous 2019 white Burgundy offers, we don't expect these bottles to be around for long. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.

Burghound:

"Here the nose is firmly reduced so be sure to give this some air if you're going to crack a bottle young. Otherwise there is good freshness and verve to the sleek, intense and overtly mineral-suffused flavors that possess fine delineation on the balanced, clean and attractively dry finale. In a word, lovely."
