Hubert Lamy, Saint Aubin, 1er Cru ‘En Remilly’ 2018

80.00

Chardonnay

This is the finest St Aubin 1er Cry – a steep south facing slope which is effectively a continuation of the famous Grand Cru Le Montrachet. As usual this is a superbly crafted wine with power and density. Intensely aromatic, bursting with minerality and oozing richness. A great white Burgundy!

“Sometimes I contemplate what I think might be the easiest way to make enemies in Burgundy: A Michelin Guide-style ranking, out of three stars, of the region’s best domaines. Olivier Lamy would be one of three white wine producers in the Côte de Beaune to whom I would unquestionably award three stars. Last year, I wrote that I ran the risk of exhausting superlatives if I attempt to articulate just how much I admire these wines, and this year is no different.”

About This Wine...

 

“Ample and demonstrative when I tasted it from barrel, Lamy’s 2018 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly has tightened up after bottling. Unwinding in the glass with notes of orange oil, nutmeg, pear and toasted bread, it’s medium to full-bodied, bright and incisive, with a coiled and concentrated core, tangy acids and a long, saline finish. The only missing ingredient is time. Drink 2026-2052.”

94/100 Robert Parker 2021

 

“The 2018 Saint-Aubin En Remilly 1er Cru has a pixelated, mineral-driven bouquet that manages to effortlessly offset the warmth of the growing season. Shucked oyster shell and limestone aromas develop in the glass. The well-balanced palate delivers wonderful harmony and a fine bead of acidity. Almost caressing in texture, with supremely well integrated oak toward the finish. Outstanding.”

92-94 points, Neal Martin, Vinous
