Tasting note

2020 Hubert Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly

This evening, my wife and I enjoyed a splendid dinner at the beautiful restaurant L’Ardoise in Beaune. On their good and fairly priced wine menu I found this 2020 Hubert Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru “En Remilly”.

Cream colour with light green reflections. Fresh and mineral on the nose. Lime, wet stones, later also flowers and some nut with very subtle sweetness. This is a beautiful, stimulating perfume. Precise in the mouth with now stronger citrus, underpinned by the fresh acidity. Lots of pull on the palate and long lasting. With more maturity, the fresh fruit will certainly be accompanied by more mineral notes. I would try this wine from Domaine Hubert Lamy again from 2025. It should then be in a good drinking window at least for the next five years.

Drink from 2025 through 2032.

Ratings

Flawed?no
DM:
93Wines with a rating of DM91 to DM93 are exceptionally good. These are wines that are not just well-made but which have a character of their own that makes them stand out. These wines offer a level of complexity that we can spend a long time with if we want to. In WSET terms, wines with a DM93 rating tend to be at the lower end of a 3.5 WSET score.

WSET:
3.0Wines with a 3.0 WSET rating are clearly 'very good' wines according to the WSET scoring system, where we consider balance (B), intensity (I), length (L) and complexity (C). In terms of my personal rating system, wines with a WSET score of 3.0 usually get 91 to 92 DM points.
/ 4.0
Stars:
4Wines with a rating of 4 stars are excellent wines in their category. They are almost at the top of their peer group in terms of quality.

Jasper Morris of InsideBurgundy.com inspired me to use his 'Five Star Scale' in my tasting notes, too. The limitation of the standard 100-point scale is that in certain appellation hierarchies, such as Burgundy village versus premier cru, the lower-end wines will typically score less than the wines higher up the hierarchy. The five star scale therefore wants to compare a wine to its peers from the same category. It allows for very well-made wines to stand out.
