"The 2014 Saint Aubin 1er Cru les Charmois comes from six different parcels that more or less lie in a straight line. This was the first vintage made completely biodynamic. It is Bachelet's Saint Aubin with the most Puligny-like bouquet: nice lift from the glass here, more tension and mineralité coming through compared to the other 2014 Saint Aubins. The palate is clean and precise, a touch of bitter lemon on the entry, white peach coming through later with a composed and focused finish and a saline aftertaste. This is a lovely Charmois in the making."
