Domaine Bader-Mimeur Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly 2016
The grapes for this wine come from 4.25 acres of land the Domaine owns in 2 vineyards in Saint Aubin. The vineyards are very close to the Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet. Saint Aubin are more powerful and structured wines. They tend to lack the grace and finesse of Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet, however that does not imply that they are lesser wines, just different. They tend to stand up to food a bit better due to their higher acid content.
Keeping period (in good conditions): 2021-2030
Service temperature: 55 to 57 °F
Open 20 minutes before drinking or to aerate well.
100% Chardonnay - White Burgundy Wine - 13% ABV
The estate began in the 11th century. During the 14th century, It was owned by J. de Chaissaigne, when the name for the estate was established. Nothing noteworthy happened for next few hundred years until the French Revolution. The estate was auctioned off in pieces. A wine trader from Masson Dubois meticulously reconstructed the estate, acquiring all land bit by bit. In 1919, Charles Mimeur purchased the estate and it has been in his family ever since. The family has a couple of wine shops in Paris, where most of their wines are sold. They supplement the domaine vineyard holdings with purchased grapes from a few highly acclaimed vineyards.
