DOMAINE LARUE – ST AUBIN, BURGUNDY

Created in 1946 by Guy Larue in the heart of St Aubin. Now managed by his sons Didier and Denis with Vivian (Didier’s son) recently joining the team. Estate consists of 17ha between St Aubin, Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet. They particularly specialize in 1er Cru St Aubin, of which En Remilly and Murgers Dents de Chien are particularly highly regarded. Domaine Larue make unapologetic dry, tense and precise Chardonnay and the 2013 vintage has perhaps only amplified this.
