2018 Chataigniers Domaine Hubert Lamy
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
One year in barrel - no new oak. Lovely fresh fruit - pear and pineapple says Olivier, but also a nice line of something of a nuttiness. L&S (Dec 2019)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The 2018 Bourgogne Les Chataigners delivers aromas of lime cordial, white flowers and crisp green apple, followed by a medium to full-bodied, pure and mineral palate, framed by chalky dry extract. This beautifully made wine is a superb introduction to one of the Côte de Beaune's finest domaines. Drinking range: 2022 - 2035 Rating: 89 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Feb 2020)
Open and zesty, the citrus aroma is really vibrant – lemon and lime. Terrific depth of fruit married to mouth-watering freshness. GV Drinking range: 2021 - 2023 Rating: 16.5 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2020)
This comes from the top of the hill. It is straight, tight, channelled and has a mineral bite at the end. Drinking range: 2020 - 2024Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Nov 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.
