🏅 Rating 90+/100 (4,05⭐)
Fresh, floral and energetic. Slightly reductive, but with light touch of oak. Bee wax, yellow plum. Saline minerality on the palate reminds of Chablis from Kimmeridgian limestone. Silky texture, flavours support the nose. Difficult to believe it is regional Bourgogne appellation. It does have this Saint Aubin signature to it. And we know from Olivier Lamy that fruit comes from vineyards adjacent to village and often times declassified fruit from superior appellations enriches this Bourgogne blend.
Superb value for money.

Good, but not the Romain-era wines I've fallen in love with, nor the recent vintages that have been very convincing. To be frank, this is the first wine I've tasted from the supposedly "troubled" years at Hubert Lignier. It kind of makes me think of KP sharing his thoughts about how you can always taste a winemaker's, or in this case family's psyche in a wine. Having said that, my issue with this wine's probably most attributed to the fact that it was made of purchased grapes from a relatively weaker Grand Cru, in a warmer vintage. Earthy and dark-fruited nose, which follows through into the densely-packed palate. It's not very giving at the moment, and never really developed with air. Finishes long, soft, and lush, with some spice and cocoa notes. I wouldn't call it flabby, but it's certainly lacking an expected elegance. — a month ago
