Very poor showing, muddled, wet dog aromatics. I’ve had some gorgeous 2016 Lamy from higher pedigree bottlings but I’d avoid this one

I had to rescore this entry, as it developed more beauty and intensity as the hours passed. Brilliant green hues and shimmering clarity. The nose is impeccably clean and fresh with wet sea shell, ocean-like salinity, lemon zest and herbs. Initial flavor profile displayed dense lemon curd and honey, but became even brighter and more focused eventually expressing much more savory and pithy characteristics. Key lime and fresh tarragon flavors resonate on the back of the palate framed by very racy minerality. By no means an inexpensive entry-level bottling but a truly superb lieu dit effort that will challenge many a Saint-Aubin 1er cru for quality.

This is a YOUNG WINE. I decanted for 2-3 hours and it really benefitted. I’ve had it at 8 years and it really shines. Very enjoyable now with some air but clearly more to say in the future.

I love this wine. So age worthy. Deeply mineral to start and then started to show its provenance after 3 hours. Love this
