Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "En Remilly" 2007, Hubert Lamy
The En Remilly vineyard came into being in the 1980s when stone crushing equipment was deployed in the land that sits between Saint-Aubin and the Montrachet hill. The resulting wines from the Hubert Lamy domaine as well as other producers have proven the sagacity of turning wilderness into wine. Last tasted in 2011, I wondered how well this 2007 Saint-Aubin blanc would have aged. No need for concern! The colour is bright, fresh and reflective: no sign of oxidation. A nose of citrus fruits, oak. Fresh, linear, light on the palate with green apple and pear flavours. This is not opulent or mind-blowing but its still impressively fresh without being overly acidic. Would have been a challenge to have spotted as a ten year old Saint-Aubin in a blind tasting. Scores 74/100 reflecting the wine's characteristics, vintage and terroir quality.
