En Remilly is one of Lamy’s prestige terroirs, sitting as it does above the Côte de Beaune’s Grand Cru vineyards, and produces one of his finest and most sought-after wines. It is priced accordingly but still very fair for a 1er Cru of this class. Lamy has two hectares in this vineyard, planted in 1989 and farms two distinct parcels that sit just above the Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru. One of these parcels is close 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 pretty much pure limestone, directly adjacent to Chevalier. This latter parcel brings a cutting tension to the former’s fleshy, layered fruit. The 2017 was partially raised in Stockinger, and the sample drawn from this demi-muid adds cut and sap to the more opulent François Frères. In reference to Martin’s notes, yes, Lamy has nailed this cuvée once again.
“The 2017 Saint-Aubin En Remilly 1er Cru comes courtesy of 2.02ha of vine planted in 1989. There is a sense of completeness on the nose here: wonderful wet limestone and oyster shell notes, plenty of fruit and concentration. The palate is well balanced with a fresh opening, very saline in the mouth with a vibrant and sustained finish. This is a "killer" En Remilly.” 92-94 points, Neal Martin, Vinous
“Outstanding Top Value. An overtly citrus-inflected nose is ripe and fresh with its vaguely exotic aromas of white peach and passion fruit. The beautifully textured and again well-concentrated flavors display obvious minerality before concluding in a lemony and bone dry finale. This should drink well young if that's your preference.” 91-93 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue 75
