    Damien  makes this fine premier cru from three parcels of 30, 40 and 50yo vines planted  on a south west facing hillside. Here the soil is around 30cm deep and the  limestone below is very hard. From the excellent 2016 vintage this wine (aged in  just 15% new oak) is pitch perfect, with a fine balance of citrus fruits,  saline edge and St Aubin’s characteristic tension. For drinking now to 2022.
