2017 Rouge Goujonne Domaine Hubert Lamy
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
(from a 1.06 ha parcel planted in 1950). This too is quite aromatically fresh with more pepper influence on the pretty mix of red currant and airy floral nuances. There is equally good vibrancy and detail to the lighter weight flavors where the relatively sleek texture contrasts somewhat with the dusty, serious and moderately structured finale. This is really quite good and worthy of consideration. Drinking range: 2025 - Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 2019)

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Goujonne Rouge, is raised in 20% new oak with 50% whole bunches, has a delightful red cherry and cranberry scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, quite sharp on the entry but with fine precision on the finish. Fine. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 Rating: 86-88 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Jan 2019)
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.
A fine selection from the majestic slopes of the Côte de Beaune.
