Domaine Hubert Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Clos du Meix
Region: Saint-Aubin, Burgundy
Producer: Hubert Lamy
Lamy has 0.7-hectares of vines in this tiny parcel, situated at the western fringe of the village and planted between 1985-1995. Clos du Meix’s sheltered location, (just below Les Castets on a south facing slope), its heavier clays and the fact that it is fully enclosed by a wall (and therefore protected from the cold, northern winds), always gives this wine excellent texture to go with its intense minerality. Contributing to the wine’s character is the boney soil in this vineyard, there’s only 30cm top soil before the vine’s roots hit the hard limestone. In recent years Clos du Meix has been really hitting its straps and the 2016 is no exception. The note below captures it well.
One of Burgundy’s best kept secrets is barely a secret any more. Olivier Lamy is making some of the purest and most mineral white Burgundies of the Côte (and some pretty damn handy reds) and demand now far exceeds supply. This will not surprise those who know how this exceptional vigneron works in the vines. Pioneer of high density and of Poussard pruning amongst other things, Lamy’s attention to detail and innovation in the vineyard is now an inspiration to knowledgeable growers across the Côte and even the world!
