St Aubin 1er Cru Rouge, Patrick Miolane
The Miolane estate is an ancient family-run business, which has been handed down through the generations. Patrick Miolane took control in 1983, and now works with his daughter Barbara, who joined the team in 2005. The estate consists of nine hectares of vineyards in St. Aubin, but also in neighbouring, Puligny and Chassagne-Montrachet.
Patrick and Barbara Miolane work the whole of the estate on lutte raisonnée principles, with the aim of conserving the environment and reducing chemical treatments to a minimum.
St. Aubin is best known as a white wine appellation, but there is a small amount of Pinot Noir produced, and from a great producer such as this, the wines can be fantastic and relatively inexpensive compared to wines from more famous red-wine villages in the Cotes de Nuits. Good Red Burgundy under £30 is getting harder and harder to find, so I was very pleased to come across this gem.
A supple, juicy Pinot that works well with rich fish (salmon) dishes, as well as lighter meat dishes.
