"Excellent tension and punch"
2014 Lamy St. Aubin 1er Cru Clos de la Chatenière Vieilles Vignes

Posted by Ian McFadden

For many people today, Lamy is one of the most exciting producers of white Burgundy around.

Lamy's wines are grandly sculpted with eye-opening rigor. The wines age beautifully on their density and serious mineral backbones.

Hubert Lamy is one of the standard-bearers for St. Aubin. Today, I'm happy to offer Lamy's 2014 Clos de la Chatenière VV for $99.95 per bottle.

La Chatenière, along with En Remilly and Murgers des Dents de Chien, are considered St. Aubin's top sites. It's a steep, very well exposed climat that delivers an enveloping and powerful minerality with a driving tension.

The 2014 vintage produced simply extraordinary white Burgundies. There's an impression of completeness and elegance to the wines that's special. Lamy's 2014 Chatenière is a wine of soaring complexity and incisive finesse.

I've been hunting down Lamy's 2014s. Their collection is stunning, and of course, Chatenière is one of the high points  As you could probably guess, quantities are very limited.  Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.

Burghound: "This is quite firmly reduced though there is excellent tension and punch to the slightly richer and rounder flavors that exhibit a subtle minerality and excellent depth and length on the clean, dry and beautifully balanced finale. This beauty should drink well a bit sooner than the Chez Edouard."
