Ratings and Tasting Notes:WA=89-91 The 2016 Saint Aubin 1er Cru Sous Roche Dumay has a beguiling nose of almond, hazelnut, citrus peel and saline scents that really make a deep impression. How can you not like this? The palate does not quite match up to the promise of the aromatics with its lightly honeyed entry and saline finish. It falls short of the mineralité to merit a higher score but it is still very well crafted. AM=89 OUTSTANDING! This is aromatically similar to the Castets except that the matchstick character is more evident. There is a bit more concentration and richness to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a highly seductive mouth feel while offering good length if not quite the same depth. Still, this is both delicious and refreshing.
