Hubert Lamy Santenay 1er Cru Clos des Gravieres 2020
Lamy is a historic name in Burgundy, with a vine-growing history in St-Aubin stretching as far back as 1640. However, it is Olivier Lamy, the current owner and winemaker of the family estate, who put this artisanal estate on the international fine wine stage.
A diligent vigneron representing the new generation of exciting winemakers, Olivier is keen to make progress in both his vineyard and cellar. Having sharpened his craft at Méo-Camuzet before taking over the family estate in 1996, he established a very sharp acumen for identifying the best and oldest sites. Adding his natural winemaking instinct to more technical knowledge such as how to train vines flexibly, his exquisitely fine and terroir-expressive wines are celebrated by Burgundian connoisseurs the world over.
“A more floral width of aroma here – really a beauty. Such incisive freshness yet width of supple, fresh, energetic flavour. Really broad finishing – a great Santenay Blanc – bravo!”
Bill Nanson, Burgundy Report
