Pierre Lamy Saint-Aubin ‘Les Frionnes’ Blanc 1982
Pierre Lamy Saint-Aubin ‘Les Frionnes’ Blanc 1982 is a full-bodied and rich Chardonnay. Clear and bright appearance with a golden yellow hue and greenish tints. Charming and expressive nose of ripe fruits, warm brioche, fresh butter and a pleasantly incorporated woodiness. The aromas follow through to the elegant palate, which has an extremely delicate texture and closes in a majestic finish.
100% Chardonnay. The fruit comes from vines that grow in Saint-Aubin, a wine-growing village in the southern part of Cote de Beaune (the heartland of great white Burgundies) that is a close neighbour of Montrachet. The vines grow in white clay soils with a high limestone content on steep slopes with an east-southeast exposure. Altitude varies between 300–350 metres.
Vinification and fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Ageing for 10 months in oak barrels. Cold stabilisation and filtering before bottling.
