About

A blend of three premier crus: Combes (0.33 ha), Perrières (0.44 ha), and Les Creots (0.52 ha). This cuvée reveals a crystalline and precise bouquet with notes of green apple and white peach, accented by hints of crushed limestone. As it opens up, it becomes more intense. It is well-balanced, starting with a peachy note, showing good depth, and slightly creamier than other cuvées with ample weight and a refined finish. Created in 2016 due to frost, this cuvée is named in honor of Colin Morey's late grandmother, Marguerite.

The white wines are whole-bunch pressed, fermented with natural yeasts, and aged on lees for up to 18 months, mostly in 350-liter barrels, with no lees stirring and no filtration.

Burghound describes the 2021 vintage as "the kind of vintage that they absolutely love. Otherwise expressed, it’s a burg geek’s vintage par excellence. The best wines are superbly fresh and transparent as the underlying terroir is wonderfully clear; indeed, it’s at the core of each wine.... Outstanding transparency, though, is not all there is, as the wines are strikingly refreshing and tension-filled."

Moderate wood influence still allows the cool aromas of white flowers and petrol to be appreciated. There is a bit more volume if perhaps not quite the same underlying tension to the medium weight flavors that terminate in a stony and lingering finish that is quite dry while offering notably better depth.

The 2021 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Hommage à Marguerite was quite tightly wound when I tasted it, unfurling in the glass with aromas of pear, citrus oil, clear honey, white flowers, toasted nuts and fresh mint. Medium-bodied, layered and rather concentrated, with racy acids and chalky grip, it will certainly benefit from further élevage.
