A Premier Cru in the middle of the hill, on decomposed limestone. Quite ripe and full, with good energy too, a sense of fresh hazelnut and walnut feel and flavour. Very mineral and pure, with a very fresh finish. Drinking range: 2017 - L&S (Nov 2015)

Some sweetness on the nose. Racy on the palate. Promising and well put together though not that concentrated. Tension is its strong suit. Drinking range: 2016 - 2022 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2016)
The 2014 Sant Aubin 1er Cru les Frionnes was showing quite a bit of reduction on the nose when I tasted it from barrel. The palate has satisfying density though and light tropical tones hovering in the background, awaiting their call to come on stage. It is harmonious and focused, again, with a dash of spice to the finish, easy-going in nature but sustained on the finish. This is just a delight, if not possessing the complexity of its siblings.

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 rather elegant and has racy energy onto the palate. However it is also is floral and is just lightly rounded and it has a light sweet generosity in the middle…and is sweetly mineral on the finish. It has a lovely balance of mineral and fruit. It can hardly fail to please. From 2017 Rating: 16.25 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Nov 2015)
(these vines are adjacent to the Derrière Chez Edouard but are planted on decomposed, rocky calcaire and are picked earlier): Musky, restrained nose communicates a warmer minerality; less iodiney than the Derrière Chez Edouard. Sappy and rich but uncompromisingly dry. Less "cool" in character than the last wine but still shows a brisk lemon peel note. Finishes subtle and long, with very good cut.

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.
