Hubert Lamy 2016s
14 August 2018

Our latest recruit to the Justerini & Brooks Burgundy portfolio barely needs an introduction. A celebrated Burgundian family, the Lamys have been working in vineyards since 1640. Domaine Hubert Lamy itself was first created in 1973. The course of the domaine’s history began to change in 1995 when Hubert’s son Olivier joined, bringing with him ambition and ideas. Contracts to sell grapes to negociants were terminated, new vineyards were bought and rented, quality soared. Olivier is the vigneron’s vigneron; passionate to the point of obsession about his work in the vineyards. He prunes famously short and late, a key factor in saving a large part of his vineyard from the 2016 frost. Other winemaking features he is renowned for are his sparing use of new oak (20% at the most,) favouring of 600l demi-muid barrels over the 225l barriques and a typically early harvest. Lamy has become a benchmark Burgundian domaine, celebrated for the energy, focus and purity of its wines. These are livewire burgundies you won’t forget in a hurry.
