Saint-Aubin Dents de Chien 1er Cru Olivier Leflaive 2014

Saint-Aubin is the perfect example of the Cote d'Or's extraordinary diversity in proximity: a single village displaying myriad canvases of colour and texture within its boundaries. Bordering the premier cru vineyards of Chassagne-Montrachet on one side and Puligny Montrachet on another, Saint-Aubin has much to offer. Dents de Chien - 'Dog's teeth' in French - is named after the characteristic triangular white stones that litter the marl-rich soils of this vineyard. Quite different to En Remilly, Dents de Chien has the darker - dare I say more 'masculine' - profile. Intense and concentrated, an explosion of flavour in the mid-palate wraps creamy layers of stone fruit around a firm mineral core. Impressive breath and length, true to form.
