Edouard was a family rather than a person, apparently, whose name has been immortalised in the name of this Premier Cru. Very densely planted with between 14,000 and 20,000 vines/ha on white marl soils, this has texture, balance and concentration, sustained by acidity and freshness and framed by refined, vanilla-scented oak.

The 2018 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Derrière Chez Edouard is showing brilliantly, offering up a deep bouquet of white flowers, warm bread, citrus zest and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, multidimensional and concentrated, this is tensile and mineral, with racy acids and chalky structuring extract that purists will find irresistible. Lamy included some fruit from young vines planted at high density in this bottle this year. (WK)
The 2018 Saint-Aubin Derrière Chez Edouard 1er Cru includes some declassified Haut Densité fruit (20% of the total production) from vines too young to enter that blend. This has a lovely bouquet of white flower aromas and citrus fruit mixed with hints of quince and orange blossom. The palate is well balanced with a saline entry, very taut and precise. Brisk Nashi pear and black currant leaf surface toward the finish. Excellent. (NM)
This is at once cooler and more elegant with its pretty combination of violet, red cherry, earth and spice whiffs. The sleek, focused and more evidently mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors possess good verve as well as fine intensity on the beautifully well-balanced finale that evidences just a touch of rusticity. Lovely.
