Vineyard Clos de la Chatenière

Chatenière always seems to have a feel of bottled sunshine - the mineral is smiling while still incisive. 'Creamy with yellow fruit', says Olivier. Showing well but still a baby, do give it time. Drinking range: 2025 - 2040 L&S (Nov 2021)

The 2019 Saint-Aubin Clos de la Chatenière 1er Cru expresses its terroir exquisitely on the nose, displaying wonderful mineralité and precision. The palate is well balanced, with a silver bead of acidity, and tensile from start to finish, yet expanding right at the end with mouthwatering sappiness. I remember this being impressive out of barrel last year, and now in bottle, Lamy has successful translated all that potential. Drinking range: 2022 - 2038 Rating: 94 Neal Martin, (Dec 2021)

(worked entirely by hand as the vineyard has a 40% south-facing slope which ensures that it receives plenty of sun). A Chablis-like nose of quinine, iodine, green fruit, citrus and shellfish is cool and very restrained. There is more volume and richness if not quite the complexity to the medium-bodied flavors that deliver fine length on the balanced and saline suffused finish. Drinking range: 2026 - Rating: 90-93 Allen Meadows, (Jun 2021)

With more weight on the palate and a slightly riper stance, this is a thrilling wine and one of my favourite from this village in 2019. Rating: 18.5+ Matthew Jukes (Jan 2021)

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.
