Arthur Barolet & Fils Saint Aubin Premier Cru 2018
In 1830, Arthur Barolet founded a small family business in Beaune, the capital of Burgundy. At first Barolet wines rarely found themselves in any export markets and were only known by a small number of connoisseurs. His grandson, also known as Arthur, left medicine and Paris in 1920, to take care of the family business. Today, the quality and the tradition established by the former owners continues in the 19th-century cellars of the Savigny-les-Beaune based Domaine.
Burgundy generates the majority of its taste and experience from the complex aromatics that lift out of the glass. Compared to Bordeaux, where the wines are bold and tannic, Burgundy displays great finesse, elevated acidity, wines that provide a sensual experience.
