2016 Domaine Hubert Lamy St. Aubin 1er Cru "En Remilly" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1343033 91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 There is mild touch of the exotic in the form of mandarin orange and viognier-like scents where additional notes of Granny Smith apples and citrus are present. Impressively dense and vibrant medium weight flavors brim with dry extract that buffers the firm acid spine shaping the mineral-driven finish. Excellent.  (6/2018)

93 points John Gilman

 The 2016 Remilly chez Lamy is equally outstanding. The vibrant bouquet wafts from the glass in a youthful mix of pear, apple, a touch of tangerine, a complex base of limestone, incipient pastry cream, apple blossoms and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is crisp, fullbodied, long and still quite primary, with a rock solid core, great backend mineral drive and a long, zesty and seamlessly balanced finish. This needs a bit of bottle age to allow its inherent complexity to really emerge. Just a lovely wine. 2022-2045.  (4/2018)

91-93 points Vinous

 Aromas of lemon, menthol, crushed rock and ginger, plus a suggestion of spicy oak. Very rich, pliant wine with compelling sweetness and terrific energy to its flavors of crystallized lemon and lime and minerals; there's also a pear note here that reminded me of Chassagne-Montrachet. Conveys a strong impression of sappy density without weight, with the smooth, slowly mounting, gripping finish coating the palate with crunchy fruit and saline crushed-stone minerality. This assemblage of multiple parcels should make an outstanding Saint-Aubin wine. (ST)  (9/2017)

92 points Decanter

 The En Remilly is a touch more concentrated and textural than the Murgers des Dents de Chien, wafting from the glass with aromas of citrus zest, preserved lemon and crème pâtissière. On the palate the wine is supple, flossy and full-bodied, with succulent acids and lovely amplitude and dimension.Drinking Window 2022 - 2033. (WK)  (10/2017)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2016 Saint Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly has a fresh, quite stony bouquet with red apples, cold slate and subtle smoky scents—a more understated nose but clean and precise. The palate is well balanced with fresh acidity and good weight, yet it clams up towards the finish and at this stage, does not deliver the riveting complexity and spine-tingling mineralité of recent vintages. Let’s see how this performs once in bottle. It is a very good Saint-Aubin, but maybe it can strive for even more once in bottle. (NM)  (12/2017)

K&L Notes

93pts Jasper Morris, MW: "There is a high class nose here, lifted and racy, more in white fruit. Good density throughout, very evenly balanced, subtle fennel notes at the back, with a very long finish indeed."(01/2018) 94pts Tim Atkin(MW): "Olivier Lamy’s En Remilly comes from two parcels, both planted in 1989 and located close to Chevalier-Montrachet, which is not a bad neighbour to have. Prices are no longer the amazing bargain they once were, but this is still one of the best wines in the village: elegant, tangy and very mineral, with aniseed and citrus intensity and just a whisper of oak. 2020-28."

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
