Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "Clos des Meix" 2008, Hubert Lamy
This Saint-Aubin has a bright, transparent, steely yellow colour. Oak, citrus and vanilla nose. Not much evolution and a little mute. Really needs more time to open up and evolve. Apple, pear, lemon and mineral. Plumps up a little after warming in the glass but not yet much weight. Tasty, balanced, fresh stone fruit flavours, dare I say it is a tad light? Classic white Burgundy though will need to wait 2 years for more complexity. Another confirmation of the high quality of the 2008 millesime.
