Saint-Aubin "Les Pucelles" 2014, Lamy-Pillot

Back in 2009 I visited the Lamy-Pillot domaine and had a jolly good tasting. The wines seemed fruit driven and there was plenty of oak. A style suited to the American palate so good to see the message is getting through here in NYC. This 2014 Chardonnay has a radiant yellow colour, really most attractive. Pear, lime, vanilla, oak on the nose. A touch of honeydew melon. Good pear and apple fruit on the palate. Fresh and crystal. Mineral finish. For a village St Aubin this is very nice. Less fruity than prior wines from the domaine. Thoroughly recommend 25/30.
