2018 Santenay 1er Cru Blanc, Clos des Gravières, Hubert Lamy

Politically the last village of the Côte d’Or, Santenay’s wines were once held in higher regard. This shows why it still should be. 50 year old vines in part, but some are seven years old. There’s a brilliant balance between ripe, intense fruit and cool minerality in 2018.

Domaine Hubert Lamy

Olivier Lamy returned to the family domaine in 1995 to work with his father, but the history of this St Aubin estate goes back even further, to 1640. In our Autumn 1990 price list we were already calling their Frionnes ‘a real favourite.’ With Olivier’s willingness to experiment, the estate has risen to a new level. His wines are always some of the purest expressions of Chardonnay in Burgundy.
