Hubert Lamy St Aubin Les Frionnes 1er Cru 2015
An interesting nose is composed by notes of pink grapefruit, acacia blossom and essence of pear.
Lamy has 2.4-hectares in this 1er Cru with the vines planted in 1935, 1960 and 1985. Les Frionnes is a southeast-facing site with old, decomposed limestone/clay soils and a plethora of small rocks in the top soil. The vines here are adjacent to the Derrière chez Edouard, but this is a slightly warmer site and is picked earlier. Exposed to the south, but on firm mineral soil, Frionnes gives both pulpy fruit and vibrant, saline freshness.
Sweet Spot. Outstanding. An interesting nose is composed by notes of pink grapefruit, acacia blossom and essence of pear. There is a wonderful texture to the caressing yet powerful middle weight plus flavors that possess an excellent sense of underlying tension before culminating in a delineated and driving finish. I was really impressed with this and it is very much recommended.90-93 pointsBurghound, Issue 67
