Domaine Hubert Lamy Saint Aubin La Princée 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine Hubert Lamy|
This cuvée is from 10 parcels covering three hectares of village-level St Aubin. It's aged mostly in larger 500- and 600-litre demi-muids, about 10% of which are new. These vines are mostly in the cooler parts of the village; they manifest themselves in a lemon-zest freshness that kicks in at the finish.
The 2020 Saint-Aubin La Princée is also very attractive, offering up aromas of crisp green apple, fresh mint, white flowers and warm bread, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny palate that's built around racy acids and chalky extract. It's a model of purity and precision.
A blend of 10 different parcels, the 2020 Saint-Aubin La Princee has a pretty nose of apple blossom and subtle granitic scents , focused with modest intensity. The palate is well-balanced with a dash of white pepper on the entry, fine acidity, quite fiery on the finish in a positive sense. Lots of energy coiled up here.
