The Lamy family have been growing vines in the area around St-Aubin since 1640 and today the estate is run by Olivier Lamy who after studying winemaking joined his father Hubert at the domaine in 1995. It was Oliviers decision to cease supplying négociants in 1997 and instead set about grubbing up and selling off what he considered to be the peripheral vines, to concentrate on keeping only the best and oldest sites in order to acheive the best expression of terroir that he felt was possible.
The domaine produces both reds and whites from its 18.5 hectares of vineyards, planted with 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot noir. Although most are found within St-Aubin, a few parcels are also located in Chassagne-Montrachet whilst a tiny plot is also situated in the Grand Cru Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Yields are kept particularly low and they have introduced selection tables to ensure that only the healthiest and ripest grapes are used in the final blends. The wines are matured in 20 - 30% new oak casks for 12 months before bottling. The quality is consistently high and often superior to wines that originate from the more fashionable villages of the cote d'or selling at significently higher prices.
