2016 Hubert Lamy, St. Aubin, Le Prince
There have been Lamys growing vines in St-Aubin since 1640 - today it is run by Olivier Lamy. Olivier is representative of a new breed of Burgundian growers keen to progress. He worked at Meo-Camuzet before taking over in 1996 from father Hubert.
"Monsieur Lamy's La Princee bottling is always one of the best village wine bargains in the world of white Burgundy and this is once again the case with the lovely 2016 version. The bouquet hops from the glass in a quite complex blend of lemon, pear, tangerine, chalky minerality, spring flowers and a touch of fresh almond in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and zesty, with a lovely core, fine backend tension an a long, vibrant and beautifully balanced finish." (90 pts. John Gilman)
