W Burgundy, Saint Aubin 1er, 'Les Frionnes,' Hubert Lamy 2020

Availability: In stock

100% Chardonnay, planted in 1935, 1960, and 1985.

Saint-Aubin is home to slopes that are quite steep, as opposed to many premier cru white Burgundy sites, which gives these wines an advantage of purity, tension, and less fat. Some of these premier cru vineyards are dominated with rock rather than the deep clay that occupies the region. Compared to the more famous Grand Crus, the Saint-Aubin area produces generously fresh wines due to the cooler climate air that blows in from the forested surroundings in the valley.

The Lamy family has been involved in winemaking since 1640. Hubert Lamy created his own wine estate in 1973, which now extends over more than 18 hectares of land. Regarded today as one of the best producers of white wines in Burgundy, Olivier produces wines renowned for their smoothness, elegance, and ability to age gracefully.

Critic Tasting Notes: "The 2020 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Frionnes is showing especially well, unfurling in the glass with hints of citrus pith, white flowers, crisp green apple and mandarin. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, it's saline and penetrating, with a bright spine of acidity. This will be well worth seeking out." - Wine Advocate
