The Wine:

Lamy’s tiny Clos du Meix parcel is just 0.7 hectares, was planted between 1985 and 1995 and is situated at the western fringe of the village. The sheltered location (just below Derrière chez Edouard), 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 and this is yet another fabulous example.

 

The Reviews:

“Notes of fresh peach, mandarin oil, white flowers, smoke and nutmeg introduce the 2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Clos du Meix, a medium to full-bodied wine that's rich and fleshy but also incisive and saline, exemplifying the vintage's alliance of concentration with acidity.” 90-92 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

“The 2019 Saint-Aubin Clos de Meix 1er Cru has a mineral-driven bouquet of wet limestone/petrichor mixed with green apple, quite Puligny-like in style. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity, a sappy entry, good density and plenty of dry extract on the finish. A touch of bitter lemon lingers on the aftertaste. Very fine.” 91 points, Neal Martin, Vinous
