Saint Aubin 1er Cru "En Remilly" 2016, Domaine Lamy

STAU280
As usual this is a superbly crafted wine and is always one of Lamy’s star performers, with the most power and density. Produced from 3 separate blocks planted by the Lamy family over the past two generations. This is the finest St Aubin 1er Cru - a steep south facing slope which is effectively a continuation of the famous Grand Cru Le Montrachet.

Domaine Hubert Lamy

Created back in 1973 by Hubert Lamy, this domaine has been run by his son, Olivier, since 1996 following his training at Domaine Meo Camuzet. He immediately introduced the changes that have ultimately elevated this domaine into the higher echelons of Burgundian winemaking. He ceased selling grapes to negociants and sold off peripheral vineyards to concentrate on the oldest and best sites. High density planting was introduced to glean as much expression of terroir as possible and selection tables were introduced into the cuverie to ensure that only the finest grapes are used. His more recent move to reduce the amount of new oak and the introduction of demi-muids (300-600lt barrels) has also helped to improve the wines at this domaine and resulted in a greater propensity to age. Olivier adapts his winemaking to the vintage. It is now without doubt one of the star domaines in Burgundy and any quality cellar should contain some wines from Olivier Lamy.

Tasting Notes

This is Grand Cru in all but name. If the Clos du Meix is magnificent, this is spectacular! Massively intense, oozing class, this is one of the wines of the vintage.

Food Matches

Enjoy with poached salmon with caper butter sauce.
