St Aubin 1er Cru 'En Remilly' 2011, Domaine Lamy

STAU205
It is now without doubt one of the star domaines of the Côte d’Or and any quality cellar should contain some wines from Olivier Lamy. 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. Aged in 25% new oak, this is a big and powerful wine - quite delightful.

Producer and Tasting Notes


Domaine Hubert Lamy

The Domaine Hubert Lamy is first and foremost a passionate winemaker, Olivier Lamy, who works the vineyard, makes wine and raises wines to market around the world.

Tasting Notes

This big and powerful wine is founded on a tightly knit structure, rich, deep honey fruits with nut overtones and a stunning citrus balance. "The 2011 St. Aubin En Remilly is wonderfully complete. Beams of vibrant minerality and acidity provide support for layers of open, resonant vintage 2011 fruit. The En Remilly is utterly vivid and kaleidoscopic in the glass, with superb nuance and transparency. Although delicious today, I really get the sense the 2011 could also age quite well given its persistence and palate presence. In my view there are two reference-point En Remillys; Olivier's Lamys is one." Antonio Galloni
