Domaine Larue Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "Murgers des Dents de Chien" 2015
The vines owned by Larue in the Mergers des Dents de Chien vineyard have been planted in 1946, 1964, 1972, 1990, and 1997 on soils of clay and limestone.
All grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. Primary fermentation takes place in barrel (25% new). The wine is aged sur-lie for 10-12 months with occasional lees stirring, then is racked before bottling.
Wines from Larue possess purity, energy, and an invariable minerality derived from the predominant limestone soils of Saint-Aubin. The Larues are meticulous and precise in all aspects of winegrowing and winemaking and their wines reflect these qualities. Tasting the full range is a veritable tour of the appellation, with each terroir’s individual and striking signature clearly evident. These wonderful white Burgundies have the additional benefit of being approachable young, although they are tightly wound and can always benefit from a few extra years of bottle age.
