Hubert Lamy 2018 Mixed Case

hubert lamy saint aubin les frionnes - wimbledon wine cellar

The 2018 vintage has turned out brilliantly at this address... the resulting wines have turned out superbly, without doubt numbering among the finest the year has to offer... In short, this is one of the two or three finest sources of white Burgundy on the Côte de Beaune, and readers are warmly encouraged to acquaint themselves with these serious, thought-provoking wines. William Kelley

Sometimes I contemplate what I think might be the easiest way to make enemies in Burgundy: A Michelin Guide-style ranking, out of three stars, of the region's best domaines. Olivier Lamy would be one of three white wine producers in the Côte de Beaune to whom I would unquestionably award three stars. Last year, I wrote that I ran the risk of exhausting superlatives if I attempt to articulate just how much I admire these wines, and this year is no different. .... it is apparent that this is a very special vintage in the making. Long after the sun set over the Côte d'Or, we continued tasting, looking at bottled 2017s and 2018s, wines that confirmed all the promise they showed during their élevage. William Kelley 

x4 2018 Domaine Hubert Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Frionnes

92pts, William Kelley on robertparker.com: The 2018 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Frionnes is showing beautifully in bottle, mingling scents of crisp orchard fruit, citrus oil and peach with hints of crushed chalk and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, bright and incisive, it's layered and saline, concluding with a mouthwatering finish.

x4 2018 Domaine Hubert Lamy Saint-Aubin La Princée

89 - 91pts, William Kelley on robertparker.com: The 2018 Saint-Aubin La Princée is showing well, opening in the glass with aromas of citrus zest, white flowers and crisp Anjou pear. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and precise, it's saline and incisive, Lamy observing that some two-thirds of this parcel is decidedly cool and windy.

x4 2018 Domaine Hubert Lamy Chassagne-Montrachet Le Concis du Champs

89 - 91pts, William Kelley on robertparker.com: The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Le Concis du Champs wafts from the glass with notes of orange oil, pear, clear honey and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, with a bright spine cloaked in fragrant fruit, this is very promising. Lamy notes that some barrels composing this cuvée fermented rapidly whereas others took 12 months to finish their sugars.
