Reviews 91-93 points Wine Advocate "Opening in the glass with notes of smoky stone fruit, pear, iodine and fresh bread, the 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Macherelles is medium to full-bodied, chalky and structured, with lively acids and an abundance of dry extract. (WK)" 91-93 points Burghound "Pretty, ripe and fresh aromas are composed by notes of resin, petrol, rosemary and citrus blossom along with a whiff of white peach. The succulent, round and lavishly rich flavors possess mouth coating sap as well as sneaky good length on the balanced and seductively caressing finale. (AM)"

About Hubert Lamy
The vineyards, spread across Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet, and Santenay, thrive under Olivier’s astute attention to detail. A proponent of high-density planting, Olivier ensures that the vines compete for nutrients, leading to concentrated, expressive fruit. His innovative approach also includes using large oak barrels for fermentation and aging, which imbues the wines with a nuanced oak character without overwhelming the fruit.
Another remarkable feature of Domaine Hubert Lamy’s winemaking is the extended aging. Olivier has notably reduced the amount of oak and sulfur used, while increasing the aging period. This gentle, prolonged élevage, lasting over two winters in barrels, imparts the wines with exceptional finesse, stability, and aging potential. His dedication to achieving the perfect balance has shifted the style from a generous oak-infused profile to a more restrained, austere, and mineral-driven character, reminiscent of Chablis, as acknowledged by Olivier himself.
Renowned critic William Kelley of The Wine Advocate lavished praise on Domaine Hubert Lamy, stating, "Sometimes I contemplate what I think might be the easiest way to make enemies in Burgundy: A Michelin Guide-style ranking, out of three stars, of the region's best domaines. Olivier Lamy would be one of three white wine producers in the Côte de Beaune to whom I would unquestionably award three stars." This ringing endorsement reflects the exceptional quality and character of the wines produced under Olivier Lamy's watchful eye.
With limited production and ever-growing demand, Domaine Hubert Lamy’s wines are a treasure for connoisseurs seeking the quintessence of Burgundy’s terroir. Olivier Lamy’s relentless pursuit of perfection has unequivocally positioned Domaine Hubert Lamy among the shining stars of Burgundy.
