2018 Sextant Julien Altaber Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Blanc

Burgundy, France

A silky premier cru Chardonnay from Julien and a very good one. Julien highlights the finesse of fruit from Saint Aubin through incredible minerality and flavour driven from limestone soils. From a plot in La Chateniaire and La Combe au Sud, one of the best areas of the appellation. Dry yet bold, with medium acidity. Online reviewer notes: curry leaves, capsicum, oak, toast, cedar, flint minerals, crushed stone minerals, wax and saline notes.

About the maker

Julien Altaber is not your typical Burgundian. Raised by dairy farmers, rather than inheriting vines like other vignerons in the region, he had to elbow his way into the rebellious side of Burgundy that is organic and natural winemaking.

Having met Dominique Derain, the two got on like a house on fire and Dominique decided that Julien could work for him in exchange for making a few barrels for himself and assist in helping him find some land to purchase. In 2011 this happened. Julien found some beautiful and uncloned Aligoté vines, followed by some Pinot in the hills of Maranges and simultaneously began working with various farmers in Saint Aubin. Julien's wines are exceptionally pure, elegant and complex. They showcase some incredible terroir in a really discrete manner.
