Hubert Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly
Lamy is a historic name in Burgundy, with a vine-growing history in St-Aubin stretching as far back as 1640. However, it is Olivier Lamy, the current owner and winemaker of the family estate, who put this artisanal estate on the international fine wine stage.
A diligent vigneron representing the new generation of exciting winemakers, Olivier is keen to make progress in both his vineyard and cellar. Having sharpened his craft at Méo-Camuzet before taking over the family estate in 1996, he established a very sharp acumen for identifying the best and oldest sites. Adding his natural winemaking instinct to more technical knowledge such as how to train vines flexibly, his exquisitely fine and terroir-expressive wines are celebrated by Burgundian connoisseurs the world over.
Lamy owns more than 2ha of this superb premier cru in two well-placed parcels. En Remilly is among the best vineyards in St-Aubin, sharing the same elevation and exposure as Montrachet. Lamy ferments in a cask (predominantly used) and ages without racking to produce this wine that is ripe and lively at the same time.
There are lush notes of ripe apricot and quince, a bright lemony note and hints of smoke and gunflint. The wine has superb tension on the palate but enough substance to carry it to a satisfying finish. Should age well indeed.
