“Golden Fruit, Rippling Intensity:” Premier Cru 2018 White Burgundy

Sofie Bohrmann’s 2018 Bourgogne blanc has been a hit. We increased our order twice over the summer, and now that the wine is here and on readers’ kitchen tables the reviews are pouring in: gorgeous fruit, beautiful tension, remarkable texture and purity for a wine under $40.

Of course Bohrmann’s lineup of White Burgundies only gets better from there. Her premier cru St-Aubin blanc is truly delicious, with all the finesse of the Bourgogne but more depth, more intensity, and more length. In recent years St-Aubin has gone from an overlooked source of value, to a source for serious white Burgundy — one taste of Bohrmann’s St-Aubin and you’ll understand why.

Bohrmann’s style is low oak, pure fruit, and exquisitely balanced texture: richness, depth and energy all at once. Raised in only 15% new oak for a year, their St-Aubin 1er cru comes from “Murgers des Dents de Chiens.” Tucked just over the hill from Montrachet Grand Cru, “Murgers” produces some of St-Aubin’s finest and most perfectly balanced wines.

The 2018 Bohrmann Murgers is lively and generous at the same time: thick and full of a rippling intensity, combining perfectly ripe golden fruit with structure and minerality. There’s precision capable of enhancing your most refined dishes — sole meuniere, for example. The use of oak is perfect: support for the minerals and fruit, but without too much spice or toast.
