Decanter
Olivier Lamy sources his Macherelles from a 0.16ha block on the northwestern side of Chassagne, very close to the lower part of the village on stony limestone. This has more power and structure than some of his St-Aubin wines, which tend to be pithier and more ethereal. Leesy, tangy and with classic struck-match aromas, this is aniseedy and rich with layers of flavour and good ageing potential.

This is still sporting notes of the malolactic fermentation. Otherwise there is outstanding intensity to the lemon-inflected medium weight flavors that display excellent length though not much complexity at present. My sense is that there is fine underlying material and that as this progresses and cleans up that it will add depth and harmony and my projected range implicitly assumes that will occur over time.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Macherelles offers up a lovely bouquet of crisp green apple, waxy citrus rind and white flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied with a riper, fleshier and somewhat more open-knit profile than the Chassagne Chaumées, though with similarly tangy acids and a saline, mineral finish. This will be one of the more accessible of Lamy's 2017s.

Hubert Lamy, France
The Lamy family has been working in the vineyards since 1640. Domaine Hubert Lamy was created by Hubert Lamy in 1973. Before creating his own domaine Hubert worked with his father, Jean Lamy. At that time the domaine was around 8 hectares in size, planted mainly in 'regional appellations'. Most of the development of the Domaine was during the 1990s when new vineyard plots were bought or rented (Clos de la Chatenière, Derrière Chez Edouard, Murgers des dents de Chien, Clos du Meix, Santenay Clos des Hâtes) or planted (En Remilly). Some parcels which were planted with Pinot Noir vines were changed to Chardonnay vines because it was considered this was a better choice for the soil type (La Princée). 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. Today the Domaine has 18.5 hectares of vines - 80% in Chardonnay and 20% in Pinot Noir. The vines are in several appellations - Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay. There are 20 appellations in total and the Domaine produces around 110,000 bottles per year.

Chassagne-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A Côte de Beaune village most famous for its beautifully textured and powerful whites, Chassagne-Montrachet reaches farthest south in the Côte d’Or, save for the village of Santenay. It has three Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Le Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet overlap with and are (confusingly) shared with the village of Puligny-Montrachet. But Chassagne-Montrachet bears sole ownership of the Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru.

The beauty doesn’t stop there as the village has a great many outstanding Premiers Crus wines and village level wines. Most famous Premiers Crus vineyards include Les Chenevottes, Clos de la Maltroie, En Cailleret and Les Ruchottes. Also, village level wines offer many lovely examples of what Chassagne-Montrachet has to offer, but at more approachable price points and perhaps less demand of waiting.

The best sites in Chassagne-Montrachet have complex soils of sedimentary rock and limestone (with less marl). Whites, which are by law composed of 100% Chardonnay (as in all classified white Burgundy from Côte d’Or), have steely power, bright and concentrated citrus, stone or tropical fruit characteristics and attractive textures ranging from plush to tactile, grippy and mineral-driven.

There is some fine Pinot Noir produced from the village. These wines tend to be high-toned and earthy, with wild herb aromas and suave tannins.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
