The Lamy’s have been a family of winemakers since 1640 in Saint Aubin, Burgundy. The Pillot familyfound its origins in the town of Chassagne-Montrachet in 1595. The union of Thérèse Pillot and René Lamy brought together two wineries located in the best climates of the communes of Chassagne-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin, Santenay and Beaune.
It was in 1973 that Thérèse and René Lamy settled in the hamlet of Morgeot in Chassagne-Montrachet. They alone exploit the vineyards and the cellar.
By dint of hard work, the farm has expanded to 20 hectares spread over the communes of Chassagne-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin, Santenay, Meursault and Beaune.
The estate’s workforce has grown accordingly: Florence, daughter of René and Thérèse, and her husband Sébastien joined Domaine Lamy-Pillot in 1998 and it was in 2004 that Karine, her older sister, and her husband Daniel completed the family farm.

Produced from 50-year-old vines and is both vinified and aged in 30% new French oak for 18 months.
Wine that has a bright pale-yellow colour. The nose is already very open and has a lot of complexity and class. It evokes citrus fruits, the minerality of a great terroir and a refined woodland. The palate is all in finesse with character and race. The structure is delicate, the balance is perfect, and the complexity of the nose extends into the mouth. Long and intense finish.
Great with roasted scallops and citrus juice, salmon en papillote with lime or mushrooms on toast
