Description Sylvain Langoureau Premier Cru
Bordering the world-famous appellations Puligny- and Chassagne-Montrachet, lies St-Aubin. This name may be slightly less known than its famous neighbors, there are more and more voices among experts to expand the Golden Triangle of the Côte de Beaune (Chassagne, Puligny and Meursault) with St-Aubin as fourth component. This is because amazingly beautiful bourgognes are made here, for (still) relatively modest prices. No less than two thirds of the vineyards enjoy prime cru status.
Sylvain Langoureau may be a small producer (8 hectares is little for Burgundy concepts), but his plots are in a number of this premier crus. Sylvain is dedicated to expressing the typical characters of the various crus. Because he places the center of gravity of his work in the vineyards (where he mostly works according to biodynamic principles) and in the basement works with restraint, he succeeds perfectly.
The premier cru Bas de Vermarain à l'Est is located in the northwestern point of the Saint-Aubin valley, just west of the village of Gamay (where Sylvain is located). The vineyard is on a fairly steep slope. Because this slope is directed to the south and the vineyard lies in a cove, the grapes get sun all day long and can ripen nicely. The westerly wind provides the necessary cooling. Although Bas de Vermarain à l'Est, even among wine journalists, is still relatively unknown, one is unanimous about the very interesting results that Sylvain is making.
Drink this special white burgundy from about five years to the harvest, preferably with creamy dishes with fish, scallops, poultry or mushrooms.
