Producer note: Olivier Lamy described 2015 as a "vintage that gave us excellent raw materials as it's rare to obtain this level of ripeness in St. Aubin and this is true despite the fact that I began picking on the 26th of August. Despite the excellent ripeness levels and super clean fruit, there just wasn't much juice in the berries. For the same reasons that I chose to pick early, which is to say to preserve both freshness and acidity, I chose to use absolutely no new wood for the whites and most of the barrels were larger format. I was really quite pleasantly surprised by how much the wines, both red and white, improved over the course of the élevage and in particular in terms of their textures and overall complexity. I quite like the vintage and while the whites are ripe and generous, that doesn't mean that they're soft or won't age reasonably well." I found the quality of Lamy's 2015s, both red and white, to be exceptional and it appears that his strategy to privilege freshness and punch at every turn paid excellent dividends.
Tasting note: A distinctly smoky nose displays notes of various citrus and floral elements that add breadth to the mostly white orchard fruit scents. The highly energetic, intense and overtly stony middle weight flavors possess good mid-palate richness while retaining good focus on the relatively linear, dry and solidly persistent finale.
