From: Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
The Lamy family has been working in the vineyards since 1640. Domaine Hubert Lamy was created by Hubert Lamy in 1973. Before creating his own domaine Hubert worked with his father, Jean Lamy. At that time the domaine was around 8 hectares in size, planted mainly in 'regional appellations'. Most of the development of the Domaine was during the 1990s when new vineyard plots were bought or rented (Clos de la Chatenière, Derrière Chez Edouard, Murgers des dents de Chien, Clos du Meix, Santenay Clos des Hâtes) or planted (En Remilly). Some parcels which were planted with Pinot Noir vines were changed to Chardonnay vines because it was considered this was a better choice for the soil type (La Princée). Olivier Lamy, having first studied winemaking and commerce, joined the Domaine in 1995. Prior to joining his father he did training courses in several other Domaines and tasted wines from all over the world. With this experience he was able to bring new ideas and new methods of working in the vines and in the cellar. Today the Domaine has 18.5 hectares of vines - 80% in Chardonnay and 20% in Pinot Noir. The vines are in several appellations - Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay. There are 20 appellations in total and the Domaine produces around 110,000 bottles per year.
Tasting Notes: The 2018 Santenay 1er Cru Clos des Gravières (Rouge) has turned out brilliantly in bottle, wafting from the glass with a deep bouquet of cassis, wild plums, woodsmoke and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, perfumed and charming, with a fleshy core of fruit, velvety tannins and lively acids, it's deep and concentrated. Lamy may be better-known for his whites, but anyone who tastes this Santenay will understand that his talents are far from being confined to Chardonnay.
