La Princée is a blend of 10 small village parcels from across just under three hectares. One-third of these vines are now over 60 years old, and the remainder were planted in 1985 and 2000. All the parcels are in the cooler, east-facing Saint-Aubin combe(valley), on chalky/mineral soils. It is therefore no surprise that this is a racy white Burgundy with great energy and a limestone-rich personality to match the layers of the vintage. This will offer more pleasure than many wines at twice the price.
“Notes of pear, fresh bread and citrus oil introduce Lamy's 2019 Saint-Aubin La Princée, a medium to full-bodied, layered and chiseled wine that's bright and chalky. Deriving from parcels that largely escaped the spring frosts, it's very classically balanced.” 89-91 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
“A ripe pear nose, but still with the feel of some freshness. Certainly the palate has chiselled fresh fruit, followed by some light mirabelle notes behind. Very good length. Not as shrill as some (not me!) criticise Olivier’s wines for being.” 88-90 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
