Producer: Hubert Lamy
Grape varieties: Chardonnay
As its name suggests, this Saint-Aubin 1er Cru comes from a clos located in the La Châtenière climate. A true 1er cru of the commune, this wine is of formidable class. The Hubert Lamy estate planted vines there in 1964, on an area of 1.24 hectares perfectly exposed in order to benefit from optimal maturity in all climates. This wine, in the talented hands of Domaine Hubert Lamy, produces Chardonnays of great consistency and impeccable quality. These are full wines, with brilliant volume, assertive minerality, rich but pure substance and a long and particularly tasty finish. A wine of great class.
Ambassador of Saint-Aubin wines, Olivier Lamy continues to strengthen the reputation of this still little-known appellation. His palette of terroirs and his talent for expressing all their nuances allow him to create magnificent wines, real alternatives to Chassagnes or Meursaults. The whites, from long pressings, are aged in 600L demi-muids with little new wood, which makes them less attractive in their youth. This is why, once out of breeding, they spend more than six months in vats. Olivier Lamy does not claim to be organic but he plows his soil and spends long hours in his vines in order to obtain more concentrated grapes and, above all, better balanced wines. With a much more moderate use of barrels today than at the beginning, he produces wines that are a bit austere when young, but whose density of texture and deep substance are suitable for aging. He settles his juices little in order to limit the doses of sulfur, while his long aging periods slowly give his wines a patina.
