Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "Les Frionnes" 2001, Hubert Lamy
Extracted from the nether regions of my cellar in Puligny, this turned out to be a gem of a bottle. An initial nose of glazed pastry, icing sugar, unsalted butter and warm cat fur. Evolves onto preserved orange. Impeccable balance on the palate, unctuous texture, still has fresh acidity, orange flavour and residual sugar. No sign of oxidation. Could not be better for a mature Saint-Aubin. Scores 29/30 for a Saint-Aubin 1er Cru.
