Château de Saint-Aubin is featured in the Magazine Terre de Vin
A big thankyou to Terre de Vins and Clément L’Hôte for this super article on the imminent opening of Château de Saint-Aubin, the new home of Prosper Maufoux.
This property, owned by the Piffaut family, which has just undergone extensive renovation, opens to the public in Spring 2021, with the inauguration of its guest suites and a new program of visits and tastings.
Just off the ‘route des grands crus’, Saint-Aubin is one of the most tranquil wine-growing areas of the Côte de Beaune. The Piffaut family, owners of Château de Saint- Aubin, embarked upon a vast renovation program in their desire to enhance the property and promote the setting, in a project that embraces a new offer of hospitality. Four guest suites will open this spring, each with their own personality, with an interior design that mixes antique furniture and contemporary style. A major feature of the rooms is their panoramic views over the vineyards of this village whose wines figure amongst the most renowned white Burgundies, like their neighbors Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Meursault.
A tour of the vineyards by e-bike
The owners have also developed a wine tourism offer that proposes four formulas, all including a visit to the vineyard and the cellars, and a commented tasting of the estate wines. And in a thoroughly modern touch, they also offer e-bike rental, along with an app that will guide visitors around the neighboring villages.
The Piffaut family, premier producers of Crémant de Bourgogne with their Veuve Ambal brand, acquired Château de Saint-Aubin in 2015. This estate of 12 hectares is exclusively planted with Chardonnay and renowned for its great white wines, notably the Clos du Chateau, a monopole Saint-Aubin Premier Cru, but also wines from renowned terroirs such as Chassagne, Puligny or Meursault, the ‘golden triangle’ of white Burgundies.
Rooms 250 € per night. Experiences and tastings from 15 €
