Not so different to the Chatenière this year, lots of energy along with the ripeness they usually achieve. Again lots of energy on the length. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 L&S (Nov 2014)

Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Bouilland. The 2013 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly has an attractive bouquet with hints of nougat and almond complementing the citrus fruit, perhaps with some new oak still to be absorbed. The palate is well balanced with orange zest and grapefruit on the entry. There is a keen line of acidity here that complements the concentration towards the finish. There is good volume to this Saint-Aubin and impressive persistence in the mouth, crowning what is a well-crafted, generous Saint-Aubin.

Bright yellow. Inviting aromas of elderflower, citrus fruits, smoke and minerals, plus a noble whiff of reduction. Large-scaled, rich and deep, showing good mineral support for the flavors of red grapefruit, peony and warm stones. This boasts the depth of fruit to enjoy young or to hold for seven or eight years. Extremely rich for Saint-Aubin. Rating: 91-93 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Sep 2015)
A slightly riper nose features an airy combination of citrus, white orchard fruit and a discreet hint of wood. There is excellent volume to the delicious middle weight flavors that possess a succulent mouth feel along with a fine bead of minerality, all wrapped in a balanced, clean, saline and lingering finish. This textbook effort should be approachable after only a few years of bottle age though reward from 5 to 7 years. 2019+ Rating: 90-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jun 2015)
A bit denser than some and pretty reticent. Structure dominates fruit at the moment. Drinking range: 2018 - 2024 Rating: 16.5+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2015)
Pure, fresh and lemony. Sample is super cold but even so there is a rich, creamy refinement on the mid palate. Deliciously well-integrated oak, showing more in texture than flavour. Drinking range: 2017 - 2025 Rating: 17 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2015)
The 2013 Saint Aubin 1er Cru en Remilly has a potent gun-flint-scented bouquet that does not mess about – real mineral notes here, the kind of nose that transfers the imbiber directly to the vineyard. The palate is very well balanced, with pretty lime and orange sorbet notes: very harmonious and tender with delicate white peach developing on the animated finish. Classy…very classy.

This has a mix of clay, rock and limestone all mixed up and looser – it does not have that clay layer like the Dent de Chien so in a warm vintage it can suffer and get too ripe without water it stresses. But therefore it really shows well in a lesser vintage. Also depends – part of the vineyard get the wind and is always fresher. Wind does play a part here. This is spicier on the nose than the Dents de Chiens; however it is much lighter on the palate, saline and bright. High toned and pure, good backbone and lovely fresh sweet acidity. It finishes on a lively long lime note. Such a white and stone soil; you can smell the ripeness of the fruit from this white stone and then taste the minerals - picked 25th or 26th” Rating: 17.4 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Nov 2014)
Domaine Hubert Lamy
Olivier Lamy has built on the solid foundations his father Hubert prepared with twenty years and more of work in the vineyards. Today the Domaine has 18.5 hectares of vines - 80% are Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir. The vines are in several appellations - Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay, as well as the excellent Bourgogne Blanc. The reputation of the domaine is now made, but the Saint Aubins, both red and white, remain some of the bargains of Côte d'Or, and challenge the supposed superiority of the grander village names on a regular basis, both in terms of young and mature wines.
Olivier's wine-making style and preference is to emphasise the fresh and the mineral side of his wines, and in 2016 and 2017 there was no new wood at all, and that is with the wines in 600 litre demi-muids rather that the classic Burgundy (225 litre) fût. Certainly Oliver's whites do have an arrow-like purity and intensity, and seem to age completely straight and true.
The reds are worth more than a casual mention too. Olivier has been getting some consultation help from Sylvain Pataille, and the wines have energy and bounce along with the supple tannins and ripeness.
