2013 Rouge Goujonne Domaine Hubert Lamy
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
(from a 1.06 ha parcel planted in 1950). This too is quite earthy with the same dark cherry aromas though here there is a bit more breadth in the form of pepper and sauvage nuances. There is good volume to the punchy medium-bodied flavors that possess solid depth and slightly better length. 2020+ Rating: 87-90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 2015)

From 65-year-old vines, the 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge La Goujonne has brambly dark berries on the nose mixed with briary and forest floor scents. The palate is fresh and vibrant with tart red cherries that belie those rigid tannins underneath, suggesting that it will need a year or two in bottle.

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.
