The Lamy-Pillot St Aubin Les Pucelles 2015 comes from 40 yr old vines and only sees 10% new oak. This is a very limited wine as only two barrels were made in 2015 and 20 cases imported to the USA. The wine could easily be confused for Puligny Montrachet as it has many of its characteristics. It begins with subtle citrus overtones and some white peach characteristics. The palate is stimulated by the overall acidity and minerality which makes it a great accompaniment to food. However it also has a richness that comes across beautifully and provides a nice lengthy finish. A rival to many 1er Cru's.
Pucelles is a vineyard at the end of St. Aubin, unlike any of its neighbors and quite unique as it has a south eastern exposure giving it plenty of sunlight all day long during the crucial summer months and especially during harvest. Although at a high elevation, three things really stand out to combine the perfect scenario. The soil is mostly composed of limestone and chalk to enhance the minerality, the high elevation provides coolness and is perfect for attaining great acidity, and finally the everlasting sun gives it a beautiful ripeness.
As you leave Puligny Montrachet and drive out of St Aubin heading west, the topography changes as some of the highest points in Burgundy with mostly a western exposure are present. The sites in this location are only classified as Village and Regional levels because many of the sites don’t attain the ripeness and richness of their counterparts lower down the hill as a result of the lack of exposure to the sun and its high elevations. However, there is one vineyard site, Pucelles, that defies any logic." -Importer
