Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 94
Decanter
This four-walled clos is located mostly on hard limestone soils, where Olivier Lamy's sloping, 60-year-old parcel is located. This is less austere than some of his wines in 2017, showing more weight and concentration. The oak is nearly all used; the fruit pure, refreshing and mineral-edged.
BH 93
Burghound.com
A distinctly smoky nose features notes of matchstick, petrol and a plethora of citrus nuances and particularly lemon-lime. There is fine volume to the attractively textured and admirably concentrated medium-bodied flavors that exude evident minerality on the powerful, serious and built-to-age finish. Lovely.
Barrel Sample: 90-93
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Notes of light reduction frame aromas of crisp green apple, dried white flowers and citrus oil, introducing the 2017 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Clos de la Chatenière, a medium to full-bodied, satiny textured wine with a tangy line of acidity and a pure, searingly mineral finish. Lamy adds the fruit from his young vines in this parcel to his Bourgogne, so this is effectively an old-vine cuvée.

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.

A steep, upcountry basin (referred to as a combe in French) in the southern end of the Côte de Beaune, St. Aubin is a direct westerly neighbor to Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. Recent years have seen a boom in white wine production so that now Chardonnay accounts for more than three quarters of area under vine here. Two thirds of St. Aubin is classified Premier Cru (30 total vineyards); most notable include Les Charmois, La Chatenière, En Remilly and Les Murgers Dents de Chie. The Premiers Crus of St. Aubin, wrapping like a ribbon upon the southeast and southwest facing slopes, produce fresh and elegant whites. When young, these tout a refreshing grip and convey qualities of white flowers, citrus, pear, green almond and wet stone. Given some age, a graceful evolution occurs so that older St. Aubin whites express richer aromas of beeswax, honey, marzipan and spice.

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.
