"There is just enough post-bottling SO2 to interfere slightly with the slightly exotic white orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in a subtle dollop of wood. There is fine richness and volume to the caressing medium weight flavors that also possess a beguiling texture before culminating in a focused, complex and attractively persistent finish. This is sufficiently forward that it should be approachable after only 3 to 4 years if desired." -Allen Meadow
"Chatenière is a more sheltered Saint Aubin Premier Cru that is less affected by the cool winds from the north and is often picked a little earlier by Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey. Very pale in colour, this is a very pure, almost transparent expression of its terroir with notes of beeswax and lanolin, tangy minerality and a long, chalky, elegant finish."
"Bordering on opulent, with a toasty, mineral aroma augmenting the lemon, apple and vanilla flavors. Vibrant acidity provides support and narrows the focus as this converges on the oak-tinged finish."
