A ripe, exuberant style, this white offers peach, melon and lemon flavors, backed by hints of pastry and spice. Vibrant and long, with a touch of heat on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 682 cases made, 200 cases imported.

Lean, sleek, polished, with fine acidity to give considerable finesse. Not especially complex, but the balance is excellent. An attractive and classy wine with touches of honey and flowers. Drink 2013 – 2020.

This delicious white comes from a large family domaine based in St-Aubin. It offers hints of white flowers and bright lime-scented fruit to fill a cool, cushioned mouthful of flavor; oak enhances the textural pleasure and adds a touch of vanillin warmth in the end. A comforting wine to drink on its own or in the company of roast chicken.

Saint-Aubin, in the hills behind Puligny-Montrachet, is the Roux family’s home village.  With this white, they have brought out the softness as well as the richness of the village’s wines. A lemon flower aroma is followed by notes of citrus and white fruit, with a touch of spice.

Ripe and full bodied, with flavors of toast and white peach. It is round, smooth, with some buttery character and a juicy citrus flavor on the finish.
