2015 1er Cru Rémilly Domaine Hubert Lamy
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
The name of the parcel apparently comes from the name of a Roman family that once lived here. You learn something new at every visit! A slightly greener look than the Chatenière, more floral on the nose, round and just as sweet as the Chatenière, complex yellow fruit notes, very pretty. Excellent again. Drinking range: 2019 - L&S (Nov 2016)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Pale, bright yellow. Complex, vibrant aromas of lemon, lime, menthol, mint, white flowers and crushed rock. Tactile, slightly saline and spicy, with its brisk acidity and underlying minerality giving the fine-grained middle palate a slightly metallic quality. Showing less personality today than the Frionnes but this is very closed. Finishes adamantly dry, stony and austere for 2015, with piquant notes of lemon, lime and minerals. Lamy planned to bottle most of his 2015s in July but may wait another month for this one. Rating: 90-92 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Sep 2017)

The 2015 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru en Remilly, from two parcels (one has more energy than the other) has a clean and precise, quite minerally bouquet with apple blossom and freshly sliced pear notes. It takes some coaxing from the glass. The palate is vibrant on the entry. There is great energy here, you can feel it fizzing through the tongue, well defined and tensile right to the finish. Excellent - I expect this to land towards the upper end of my banded score once in bottle. Drinking range: 2018 - 2030 Rating: 91-93 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(Dec 2016)
This the top with limestone. Pure and silky, straight and mineral..sappy and zesty and lively. Lower more steep more clay. Warmer with less acidity Third part is richer and has more weight and is slightly oily. This is almost over ripe, fuller and rich and a bit exotic. However the blend is predominately the top part and this is tense and pure and straight with a tension and minerality. Rating: 17.25 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Dec 2016)
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.
