2020 Francois Carillon Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien
Les Murgers des Dents de Chien is a vineyard that is on the Puligny side of St. Aubin, bordering the 1er Cru Puligny Champs Gains, and it sits just a few dozen meters above the Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet. It’s one of the highest vineyards in St. Aubin, with an ideal south/southeast exposure, unlike much of St. Aubin, which is more westerly. The soil is a very pebbly thin limestone, not unlike that of the great Le Montrachet, which we find quite intriguing. It is considered by many insiders to be the finest vineyard in St. Aubin.
