Reviews 94 points Wine Advocate "The 2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly unwinds in the glass to reveal aromas of crisp stone fruit, fresh bread, dried white flowers and wet stones, framed by a discreet touch of youthful reduction. Medium to full-bodied and ample yet chiseled, it's taut and mineral, with deep reserves of concentration and a long, saline finish. (WK)" 94 points Vinous "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! (NM)" 91-93 points Burghound "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. (AM)"

About Hubert Lamy
The vineyards, spread across Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet, and Santenay, thrive under Olivier’s astute attention to detail. A proponent of high-density planting, Olivier ensures that the vines compete for nutrients, leading to concentrated, expressive fruit. His innovative approach also includes using large oak barrels for fermentation and aging, which imbues the wines with a nuanced oak character without overwhelming the fruit.
Another remarkable feature of Domaine Hubert Lamy’s winemaking is the extended aging. Olivier has notably reduced the amount of oak and sulfur used, while increasing the aging period. This gentle, prolonged élevage, lasting over two winters in barrels, imparts the wines with exceptional finesse, stability, and aging potential. His dedication to achieving the perfect balance has shifted the style from a generous oak-infused profile to a more restrained, austere, and mineral-driven character, reminiscent of Chablis, as acknowledged by Olivier himself.
Renowned critic William Kelley of The Wine Advocate lavished praise on Domaine Hubert Lamy, stating, "Sometimes I contemplate what I think might be the easiest way to make enemies in Burgundy: A Michelin Guide-style ranking, out of three stars, of the region's best domaines. Olivier Lamy would be one of three white wine producers in the Côte de Beaune to whom I would unquestionably award three stars." This ringing endorsement reflects the exceptional quality and character of the wines produced under Olivier Lamy's watchful eye.
With limited production and ever-growing demand, Domaine Hubert Lamy’s wines are a treasure for connoisseurs seeking the quintessence of Burgundy’s terroir. Olivier Lamy’s relentless pursuit of perfection has unequivocally positioned Domaine Hubert Lamy among the shining stars of Burgundy.
