Saint-Romain Blanc 2017
Saint-Romain shows a pale yellow colour with green touches. The nose is very expressive with white flowers and white fruit flesh aromas. It is well structured in the mouth with a nice acidity giving a very nice and fresh aftertaste.
Saint-Romain is a small village next to Auxey-Duresses. The vineyards are quite high and steep, planted under famous cliffs. Vineyards have South/South-East orientation. The soils of Saint-Romain are made of lime stones with some clay veins, very appropriate to the production of white wines.
The 2017 vintage was very dry, but was relatively cool. Luckily, the frost damage was minimal and a combination of moderate day temperatures and cool evenings resulted in relatively good yield and wonderful flavour concentration.
The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 14 months.
