It's clear that Olivier Lamy is at the top of his game.
Every time that I taste one of Lamy's wines, what's in my glass is thoroughly exciting. They are grandly sculpted wines with eye-opening rigor.
It's not surprising that they produced a truly incredible cast of 2017s. As Burghound writes, "It's no secret that Lamy has been on a roll over the last 5-ish+ years and 2017 will do nothing except enhance that reputation."
I've been snapping up 2017 white Burgundies aggressively. It's a gorgeous, nearly perfectly proportioned vintage. It's clear that the word is out: each of our 2017 white Burgundy offers have been met with a strong response.
Today, I'm happy to offer one of the places in Lamy's 2017 lineup where value and outright deliciousness intersect, the Chassagne-Montrachet "Le Concis du Champs." It's a bottle that delivers so much for its price tag.
Concis du Champs comes from the lower section of the hill in Chassagne, and you can feel a saturating presence to the wine. However, what makes this a bottle that we return to often is the zip and edgy minerality that Lamy gives to the wine.
The 2017 Concis du Champs is an irresistible bottle of white Burgundy. It has an ample silken texture with an underlying mineral influenced verve that animates it. The Burghound note below does a good job highlighting the savory notes that add a fascinating complexity to the wine.
This is an offer that I expect to sell out quickly. Word is definitely out on both Lamy and the 2017 vintage. At this price, it's a wine that's hard to beat.
