From vines high up above the village appellations in Saint Aubin, this is worked like a village wine and has a very Saint Aubin racy character, a little point of sweetness in the fruit, a bit of weight and a slightly phenolic intensity on the middle which will fill out - all the bones are there. Drinking range: 2023 - 2030 L&S (Nov 2021)

*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.

Pretty and very fresh aromas of apple, lemon and petrol give way to intense, detailed and bright flavors that are supported by lemon-tinged acidity on the complex and lingering finish. This Chablis-like effort is excellent for its level. Drinking range: 2024 - Rating: 87-89 Allen Meadows, (Jun 2021)

Bursting with scents of pear, peach, beeswax and white flowers, the 2019 Bourgogne Les Chataigners is medium to full-bodied, round and fleshy, with lively acids and a precise finish. More concentrated than the 2018 but just as dynamic, it's very promising. Rating: 88-90 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)

The 2019 Bourgogne Blanc Les Chatagnière has a taut, flinty nose that opens nicely with aeration. The palate shows good weight with lemon sherbet and light orange zest notes. Fine precision on the finish for a Bourgogne Blanc, Lamy shows that he can produce great white Burgundy without Premier or Village Cru status. Drinking range: 2021 - 2025 Rating: 86-88 Neal Martin, (Dec 2020)

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 there is very little new wood in this cellar, with many wines with 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.
