The Wine:

Lamy’s tiny Clos du Meix parcel is just 0.7 hectares, situated at the western fringe of the village. Planted between 1985 and 1995, the sheltered location (just below Les Castets on a south-facing slope), its heavier clays, and the fact that it is fully enclosed by a wall (and therefore protected from the cold, northern winds), always gives this wine excellent texture to go with its intense minerality. Contributing to this mineral character is the bony soil in this vineyard, which has just 30cm of topsoil before the vine roots hit hard limestone. In recent years Clos du Meix has been really hitting its straps: expect a bright and beguiling white Burgundy, with good texture offset by invigorating chalky, saline freshness.

Tasting Note:

“The 2018 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Clos du Meix reveals aromas of crisp green apple, white flowers, citrus zest and freshly baked bread, followed by a medium to full-bodied, round but incisive palate that's chalky and mineral, with fine depth at the core and a long finish. This rocky, southeasterly exposed site is located by the village, below Derrière Chez Edouard.” 90-92 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
