Hubert Lamy, Burgundy 2015

"Olivier Lamy has deservedly become one of the most consistently impressive winemakers within Saint-Aubin and the quality of his wines shone through in 2015. There are several highlights including a superb Saint-Aubin En Remilly closely followed by an excellent Saint-Aubin Frionnes. If not in a Saint-Aubin mood, then check out his impressive Chassagne-Montrachet. Overall, it was a bountiful crop of top-class wines from Olivier, continuing to reaffirm his status as one of the best winemakers in the Côte de Beaune."
— Neal Martin.

The Lamy family have been working in the vineyards since 1640.  Domaine Hubert Lamy was created by Hubert Lamy in 1973 and his son Olivier Lamy, having first studied winemaking and commerce, joined the Domaine in 1995. Prior to joining his father he did training courses in several other Domaines and tasted wines from all over the world.  With this experience he was able to bring new ideas and new methods of working in the vines and in the cellar and is now one of the most respected white wine producers in the Côte de Beaune, producing racy, intensely mineral and floral whites of the highest quality. These are wines that showcase the very best aspects of St Aubin’s terroir.

St Aubin has very rocky, chalky and mineral soils and borders the communes of Chassagne and Puligny Montrachet. The best St Aubin vineyards lie very close to the great Grand Crus of these communes and in some cases only a few metres away! However these sites are typically far steeper and rockier than the vineyards of Chassagne or Puligny and result in whites that are often more racy and zesty with beautiful minerality.

These are some of the most exhilarating white wines in Burgundy. Olivier seeks to make stylish wines that are refined and fresh, that highlight the mineral character of his soils. Yields are kept low and during harvest, grapes are sorted in the cellar. Vinification is traditional and the wines are matured in oak casks (20-30% new) for 12-18 months before light filtration and bottling. Olivier has begun using 600-lt tonneaux, rather than all 225-litre barriques. He feels this protects the purity of the fruit without over-oaking. Today, the majority of Lamy’s production is raised in these larger casks. 

“Run by Olivier Lamy, son of Hubert, this is, along with that of Marc Colin, the best address in the commune. There are delicious wines here.”  — Clive Coates, The Wines of Burgundy
