Saint Aubin Vignes Moingeon 1. Cru

Wine 73


The 'Vignes Moingeon' vineyard is on the same slope as the famous 'En Remilly' and 'Murgers des dents de chien'. As you can expect from JanotsBos, this Saint-Aubin 1er Cru is another 'bombe'. We find aromas of lemon and lime, grass, a salty touch and minerality. The palate shows the same notes, but also some mandarin and passionfruit.

The wine is very dry, pure, has a great structure and with its finesse and elegance it resembles a Puligny-Montrachet. The aftertaste is long, clean and with a nice mineral touch.

Vinen er meget tør, ren, har en fantastisk struktur og med sin finesse og elegance ligner den en Puligny-Montrachet. Eftersmagen er lang, ren, og med et dejligt mineralsk touch.

The winery was founded in 2005 by Thierry Janots (1961), French, and Richard Bos (1967), Dutch. Two excellent winemakers with a passion for wines from the Côte d'Or, Bourgogne. In their winery in Meursault they make wines of the highest quality, brilliantly expressing the famous Burgundy terroir. They avoid additives and superfluous manipulations. They have known each other since they met in 1996 at the wine school, the Lyceé Viticole, in Beaune. Thierry has worked for numerous famous wineries, like Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour and Domaine des Comtes Lafon. Richard worked in the Netherlands in gastronomy. Almost ten years after his education in Beaune, he followed his heart and went back to Burgundy. In 2005 they decided to join forces and founded JanotsBos.

Vingården blev grundlagt i 2005 af Thierry Janots (1961), fransk, og Richard Bos (1967), hollandsk. To fremragende vinproducenter med en lidenskab for vin fra Côte d'Or, Bourgogne. På deres vingård i Meursault fremstiller de vine af højeste kvalitet og udtrykker glimrende den berømte Bourgogne-terroir. De undgår tilsætningsstoffer og overflødige manipulationer. De har kendt hinanden, siden de mødtes i 1996 på vinskolen, Lyceé Viticole, i Beaune. Thierry har arbejdet hos adskillige berømte vingårde som Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour og Domaine des Comtes Lafon. Richard arbejdede i Holland inden for gastronomi. Næsten ti år efter sin uddannelse i Beaune fulgte han sit hjerte og drog tilbage til Bourgogne. I 2005 besluttede de at gå sammen og grundlagde JanotsBos.

General grape descriptions


Wine drinkers find it flatteringly easy to enjoy, with its broad, exuberant charms, relatively high alcohol and low acidity, and lack of powerful scent. Vine growers find it easy to grow productively and profitably (it can yield well, ripen usefully early, although buds rather too early for frost-free comfort in cool climates). And winemakers revel in the range of different winemaking techniques to which Chardonnay readily submits: not just a wide range of dry white wines with more weight than most, but delicate sparkling wines and even a few extremely successful sweet white wines made with the benefit of 'noble rot'.
