About the Producer
Domaine Hubert et Olivier Lamy is one of the most innovative producers in Burgundy. Based in Saint-Aubin, Olivier joined his father in 1995 and represents a dynamic new generation of growers. While the backbone of the domaine are the stunning wines from Saint-Aubin, the jewel in the crown is their tiny holding in Criots-Bâtard Montrachet. Although not certified, he practices organic viticulture and yields are kept low. Among Olivier’s exciting innovations is the planting of high density (haute densité) vineyards to force the vines deep into the bedrock. These wines show remarkable intensity and energy. In the cellar, he keeps wood to a minimum using a high proportion of larger old barrels and no new oak. The wines are known for their purity and precision, each one a clear expression of its terroir. Olivier has produced a stunning set of 2019s from the smallest berries he has seen in the last 30 years.

2019 Saint-Aubin La Princée
Very refreshing and vibrant, aromas of fresh pears and stone fruit lead to a mouth-watering palate of bright citrus fruits with a hint of apricot on the mid-palate. There’s an underlying chalky mineral character and a bitter fresh note on the finish. Drink from 2021.
2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Frionnes
A vineyard located close to the village which produces beautifully pure wines, the 2019 has a bouquet of bright citrus and peach fruit. On the palate it displays pithy citrus flavours and a chalky mineral freshness with a hint of white pepper on the finish – energetic and fresh. Drink from 2022.
2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Clos de la Chatenière
A little more austere than the Frionnes, the steep slope and age of the vines (planted in the 1960s) show through with its fine mineral expression and a hint of iron. Quite floral with impressive energy and tension and a long finish, this is a wine for ageing. Drink from 2022.
2019 Puligny-Montrachet Les Tremblots
A wine with an impressive level of concentration and vigour, it is not easy to taste at the moment due to a hint of reduction. Nevertheless, there are notes of bitter lemon and grapefruit and you can tell there is great promise. Just need some time to settle. Drink from 2023.
2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Le Concis du Champs
An expressive wine with an energetic bouquet of lemons and white peaches with scents of honeysuckle and almonds. Yellow stone fruits are enlivened by a chalky mineral freshness and there’s a touch of bitter lemon on the finish. Excellent. Drink from 2023.
2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien
A high level of millerandage produced very small berries in 2019. The wine has an appealing bouquet of stone fruits with scents of white smoke. Showing lovely concentration of yellow fruit flavours, a dash of lime and a flinty mineral note on the finish, this is a very fresh and energetic wine. Drink from 2024.
