En Remilly is one of Lamy’s prestige terroirs—sitting above the Côte de Beaune’s Grand Cru vineyards—and it produces one of his finest and most sought-after wines. Lamy has two hectares in this vineyard (planted in 1989) across two distinct parcels that sit just above the Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru. One of these parcels is quite near to his Clos de la Chatenière vineyard and is a warmer terroir on a loosely knit mix of clay and limestone. The second is a far rockier site on almost pure limestone, directly adjacent to Chevalier. This latter parcel brings a cutting tension to the former’s fleshy, layered fruit. This wine is today a benchmark of white Burgundy.
Sweet spot, Outstanding. “Ripe aromas of citrus confit, spice and mineral reduction slide gracefully into dense and solidly voluminous flavors that also exude a refreshing salinity on the clean and dry finish where a hint of bitter lemon slowly emerges. This will need to develop more depth to merit the top end of my predicted range, but the potential is there.” 91-93 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound
“The 2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly is showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, peach, white flowers and fresh bread. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's textural and enveloping, with an ample, elegantly layered core, lively acids and a long, saline finish.” 92-94 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
“The 2019 Saint-Aubin En Remilly 1er Cru has a clean, precise bouquet that delivers palpable energy and gains complexity in the glass, evoking memories of clambering over cockles in my seaside hometown, a briny tang in the air. The palate is very well balanced with a sapid entry, lovely weight in the mouth and hints of sour lemon on the finish that get the saliva flowing... again! Have a second bottle handy – you’ll need it.” 94 points, Neal Martin, Vinous
