Description

The Langoureau family own several sites outside of their home village of St Aubin. One of our favourites is Les Houillères, a Lieux-Dit which lies below Bâtard-Montrachet right against the Puligny border. It seems to take some Puligny influence in its chalky, taut frame. Sweet lime nose. Fuller bodied, but also higher in acidity, backed by a touch of salinity. Stylish palate, rakish fruit, good length, notes of peach and lime on the finish.

About the Domaine

We have been working with Langoureau for three years now and their range has proved very popular, combining ripe balanced fruit with quality Cote D’Or Chardonnay which offer exceptional quality and value.

Sylvain has been in charge since 1989, working closely with his wife Nathalie. Together they have quietly built the reputation of the domaine, producing terroir focussed lively whites from some of St Aubin’s best sites. The domaine also owns vineyards in Chassagne and Puligny and produce an excellent Aligoté, the 2015 of which is drinking beautifully now. Now fully organic, the domaine is worked by hand, vines are pruned to give low yields and grass grows between the rows. In the winery fermentations occur with natural yeasts and new oak is used sparingly. Sylvain and Nathalie want to clearly transmit their various climats, free from invasive flavours. Absolutely a domaine to watch as St Aubin continues to prove a happy hunting ground for top quality white burgundy at drinkable prices.
