"The 2014 Saint Aubin 1er Cru les Champlots has a detailed nose, quite reserved at first, revealing subtle cold granite and touches of white tea with time, neatly interwoven with the citrus fruit. The palate is taut on the entry, plenty of Granny Smith apples here, a touch of nettle. There is not huge weight or concentration: this is more about the tension and nervousness of the wine. "
