This domaine was founded with 8 hectares in 1973 by Hubert Lamy, who was joined by his son, Olivier, in 1995 – following which began major acquisitions in Saint-Aubin, Puligny, Chassagne and Santenay. The domaine now comprises 18.5 hectares (80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir). The reds, all now planted to high-density (minimum of 14,000 vines per hectare) cordon de royat, in order to lower yields and give better maturation, are fine, ripe, pure and juicy. However, the whites are amongst the best in the Côte de Beaune – at once sublimely chiselled, tense, minerally, reticent and crystalline-pure. They are gently pressed then run straight to barrel, with a maximum of 20% new oak (225 ltr pieces and 600 ltr demi-muids), without débourbage.
Saint Aubin Blanc “La Princée“. 3 hectares were planted in 1985 and 2000. Vinified in 600 ltr demi-muids. ‘La Princée’ contains fruit from 10 different parcels across the appellation. Notes of lime and tangerine entice on the nose with bracing acidity and a delightful savouriness coming through on the finish.
