2016 Domaine Hubert Lamy St. Aubin 1er Cru "Clos du Meix"

SKU #1428384 90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Once again there is ample citrus influence on the nose of mineral reduction and white-fleshed fruit aromas. The almost painfully intense middle weight flavors brim with minerality while concluding in an overtly punch, youthfully austere linear finish that cuts like a knife. Like several of the wines, this won’t be for everyone. Drink: 2024+ *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (6/2018)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Saint Aubin 1er Cru Clos du Meix comes from vines on hard limestone soil, and while it may not constitute one of Olivier Lamy's best-known labels, I was very impressed by this showing. It has a well-defined, wet limestone and slate-scented bouquet that translates the terroir extremely well. The palate is very well balanced with a keen line of acidity, very saline in the mouth with the saliva flowing after the wine is departed. You can already envisage this partnering and enhancing a heaped plate of fruits de mer! (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2016 Clos du Meix is lovely, with a bit more depth and potential longevity than the very good Saint Aubin AC this year. The nose wafts from the glass in a vibrant blend of lemon, pear, chalky minerality, a dollop of crème patissière, lemon zest and a hint of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, long and complex, with excellent focus and energy, a good core and fine balance and grip on the zesty finish. This will be approachable early, but deserves a couple of years in the cellar to allow that additional layer of premier cru complexity to fully emerge. 2020-2040. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

89-91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (from hard limestone soil over mother rock): Strong calcaire pungency to the aromas of lime zest, ginger, quinine and menthol. In a very cool style but with lovely intensity and definition to the flavors of lime and minerals. Penetrating, tactile and very long, with a taut minerality that reminded me of Riesling. Tight, dry and powerfully citric on the finish. My style of wine.(ST) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

Decanter

Outer quote mark An elegant nose of apple blossom and honey precedes a stony and attractively floral wine. It is medium-full, expansive and detailed on the palate. In 2016 this south-facing site doesn’t seem to have achieved quite as much concentration or mid-palate depth as the Clos des Gravières, however.Drinking Window 2020 - 2030. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Almost a note of honey on the nose here. Real direction and focus – and a drier finish than many. Ambitious but in a subtle way – the reverse of flashy. Chalky texture. 16.5++/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2019)
