Jane MacQuitty recommends this sophisticated white Burgundy in glowing terms in her piece on the 1st November. As usual, once white Burgundy nears maturity it does not last long – 15 cases left of this vintage at time of writing, so get your skates on.
‘The cooler side of St. Aubin emerges in the 2010 St. Aubin Les Frionnes. Precise mineral notes frame exquisite fruit in this delicate, impeccable Burgundy. There is an understated intensity in the Frionnes that is gorgeous. The rocky soils in this site trap the daytime heat, yet at the same time force the roots to grow deep into the soils for nourishment.’ 93 Antonio Galloni, www.vinousmedia.com
