The Lamy Santeney 1er Cru Clos des Gravières is light-bodied, elegant, mineral, and aromatic.

The Lamy family has been working in the vineyards since 1640. Domaine Hubert Lamy was created by Hubert Lamy in 1973. At that time, the domaine was around 8 hectares in size, planted mainly in 'regional appellations'. Most of the development of the Domaine was during the 1990s when new vineyard plots were bought or rented. Olivier Lamy, having first studied winemaking and commerce, joined the Domaine in 1995. Today, the Domaine has 18.5 hectares of vines - 80% in Chardonnay and 20% in Pinot Noir.

One would be hard pressed to find a better white wine maker in all of Burgundy than Olivier Lamy. Most of his holdings are located in the so-called “secondary” appellation of Saint-Aubin, with only a few wines outside of the appellation. What Olivier is able to accomplish in Saint-Aubin makes you wonder what he could do with prime spots in Meursault, Corton-Charlemagne, the Montrachets or even Chablis. Olivier is intense, and his wines are the same.

It used to be said that his wines are expensive for Saint-Aubin, but for wines this great, I say they are the best deal in Burgundy. Sadly, the quantities of his wines that are available are minuscule, as high demand for the wines worldwide make it difficult for anyone to acquire much.
