Vibrant and expressive. A bit bigger volume in the mouth than the Frionnes, but much more expression, sunny and open. Lovely succulent tension, and very long on the finish. L&S (Dec 2013)

Lamy is one of the glamorous names in a commune increasingly sough after for its good value. Here, old vines yield a stimulating wine with great energy. Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Jun 2017)

One of a number of excellent white Burgundies from this fine Côte de Beaune producer, this 1er Cru Clos de la Chatenière has a nice degree of age on it as a result of which the aromas have gained in complexity, while the full-flavoured peachy fruit of the Chardonnay is focused by a well-crafted nuttiness and polished by subtle oak. Rating: 91 The Wine Gang - (Jun 2017)

Flinty smoky aromas on the nose marking this as a reductive style of Chardonnay, with a lovely white peach scent on the palate. Concentrated, fibrous, mouthfilling - though the very slight oxidative hint on the finish suggests this should be drunk soon. Rating: 17 Richard Hemming MW - (Mar 2017)

Domaine Hubert Lamy

Olivier Lamy has built on the solid foundations his father Hubert prepared with twenty years and more of work in the vineyards. Today the Domaine has 18.5 hectares of vines - 80% are Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir. The vines are in several appellations - Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay, as well as the excellent Bourgogne Blanc. The reputation of the domaine is now made, but the Saint Aubins, both red and white, remain some of the bargains of Côte d'Or, and challenge the supposed superiority of the grander village names on a regular basis, both in terms of young and mature wines.

Olivier's wine-making style and preference is to emphasise the fresh and the mineral side of his wines, and in 2016 and 2017 there was no new wood at all, and that is with the wines in 600 litre demi-muids rather that the classic Burgundy (225 litre) fût. Certainly Oliver's whites do have an arrow-like purity and intensity, and seem to age completely straight and true.

The reds are worth more than a casual mention too. Olivier has been getting some consultation help from Sylvain Pataille, and the wines have energy and bounce along with the supple tannins and ripeness.
