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. 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 villages on a regular basis, both in terms of young and mature wines.
Good medium yellow. Very ripe aromas of fresh apricot and peach. Silky and glyceral-rich, but the fat yellow fruit flavors are nicely framed by insidious acidity. Finishes long but a bit youthfully aggressive, with brisk notes of lemon and red grapefruit. Rating: 90-91 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Sep 2015)
The much more expressive nose is dominated by a variety of citrus elements where breadth is present in the form of wet stone, floral and essence of pear nuances. There is outstanding vibrancy and minerality to the notably ripe, round and delicious medium-bodied flavors that deliver excellent length if perhaps not quite the same level of complexity though this may change with age. 2019+ Rating: 89-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2015)

When Oliver took his samples of this vineyard he discovered that it was not Marl Blanche as he had expected, but small pebbly rocks. This is more reserved on the nose, but lovely and fresh and energetic on the palate. Very pretty premier cru. Energetic and zesty with a floral note.
