Lamy has been a well-kept secret, but the cat’s outta the bag, and this name is on the rise toward stardom. The domaine, started by father Hubert in 1973, is now helmed by son Olivier, who joined the ranks in 1995, during a time transformation and great growth -increasing from eight to eighteen hectares, planted over twenty appellations – for the winery. Olivier’s time working and tasting elsewhere brought new dimension to the wines. The focus is on Chardonnay, which accounts for 80% of their plantings. Olivier’s are elevated and linear. Chataigners is a Bourgogne Blanc from hilltops bending toward Meursault. And though this wine is “entry level” it gives the meilleurs Meursaults a run for their money.
Chataigners is a Bourgogne Blanc by classification, but with hilltops bending toward Meursault, it drinks far beyond what meets the eye. It’s an entry level style that sums up why Burgundy is all about its producers.
