Ripe pear, a touch of spice - ginger. A ripe and fat wine which will be easy to drink young. Good precision, nice fresh acidity picking up the finish. Drinking range: 2018 - L&S (Nov 2016)

Clean and fresh. Quite tight and taut. Not that full on the end. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 Rating: 16+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2017)
From ten parcels with the village cru, the 2015 Saint-Aubin les Princée has a clean apple blossom and granitic bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is fresh and quite citric on the entry with fresh-squeezed limes and green apple, finishing just a little short at the moment, though it should gain length in bottle. It feels brisk and taut, but should open its arms once in bottle. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 87-89 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(Dec 2016)
Harvested later as higher and colder. This is very zesty and pure and tight. Rich fruit flavour though. The palate is quite zesty and here is freshness on the finish. Punchy at the end. 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.
