75cl * 12.7% ABV * Burgundy, France
This sixth-generation winemaking family sells 95% of its production to private clients in Burgundy alone, so they have no need for a website or any sort of marketing. They do dabble with Facebook, not to sell their wines, but to share pictures of the harvest and the sumptuous spread they put on for pickers afterwards.
The domaine is situated in the little village of Nolay approximately 8km west of St Aubin. The 'fille' in the name is Clotilde who joined her father at the domaine in 2000 and has since then taken over from him. Almost the entire production from their estate is sold locally to a loyal list of customers, just proving what a hidden secret it is. We only have it due to our buying group's exceptional connections in Burgundy - and we keep our fingers crossed each year to get our allocation. 2020 is of excellent quality and perhaps one of Burgundy's most exciting, recent vintages.
Team Taurus were lucky enough to try a cask sample of this in January 2022. Our note read. "Beautifully slatey and elegant, delicate well balanced wood and an amazing elegance very much in the St Aubin style just at a fraction of the price. Will be buying some for personal drinking."
