Presentation of Domaine Hubert Lamy
The Lamys have been cultivating vines in St-Aubin since 1640 - today it is run by Olivier Lamy. Olivier is the representative of a new generation of Burgundian growers eager to progress. He worked at Méo-Camuzet before taking over from his father, Hubert, in 1996. Olivier stopped supplying merchants in 1997, by uprooting and selling outlying vines, keeping only the best and oldest sites. He is currently experimenting with different planting densities in order to capture an even greater expression of the terroir. One could hardly find a better white wine producer in Burgundy than Olivier Lamy. Most of his estates are located in the so-called "secondary" appellation of Saint-Aubin, with only a few wines outside the appellation. What Olivier is able to do in Saint-Aubin makes one think of what he could do with prime locations in Meursault, Corton-Charlemagne, les Montrachets or Chablis. Olivier is intense and his wines are the same. It was said that his wines are expensive for Saint-Aubin. But for such good wines, I say they are the best bargain in Burgundy. For us, it is as special as it can be.
The wines of the estate
The estate produces both reds and whites and now has 16.5 hectares of vines, mainly in St-Aubin, but a few plots in Chassagne-Montrachet and a tiny plot in the Grand Cru Criots-Bastard-Montrachet. Yields are kept low and a recent innovation has been the introduction of sorting tables in the vat room to ensure that only the healthiest and ripest grapes are used. The vinification is traditional: the wines are aged in oak barrels (20-30% new) for 12 months before minimal filtration and bottling. The quality is very high and is often superior to many wines from more fashionable villages that sell for twice the price.
