2016 Domaine Hubert Lamy Chassagne Montrachet "Le Concis du Champ" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1343038 89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Once again there is an intense citrus character to the floral and apple-scented nose. There is more volume and richness to the medium-bodied flavors that possess an unusually refined mouth feel for a Chassagne villages, all wrapped in a generous and palate coating finale. Excellent for its level.  (6/2018)


 The Concis du Champs is a very classic rendition of Chassagne, albeit in Lamy’s tensile style, with a boisterous bouquet of pear, spice, hazelnut and preserved lemon. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, glossy and ample, with bright acids and good length.Drinking Window 2019 - 2026.(WK)  (10/2017)

John Gilman

 With the very severe frost damage in the vineyards of Chassagne in 2016, it is not surprising that the domaine’s Chassagne AC cannot quite match the vibrancy of the La Princée, but this is still a good, solid effort for the vintage that will give lots of pleasure in its early years. The nose is wide open and inviting, offering up scents of apple, pear, a touch of nuttiness, a good base of soil and a floral topnote. On the palate the wine is full, succulent and quite long, with good depth and nascent complexity, but with a fairly gentle structural chassis and not the same backend energy as the above wine. 2018-2027.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2016 Chassagne Montrachet Le Concis du Champs had a tightly wound, wet clay-scented bouquet that needed a lot of encouragement from the glass. The palate is straightforward with a slightly waxy texture, moderate depth but missing some tension and detail toward the finish. I wanted to like this more but found this lacking tension and energy compared to Olivier Lamy's other 2016s at this stage.(NM)  (12/2017)


 (12.2% alcohol chaptalized to 12.8%; picked at the beginning of the harvest; the small berries here typically yield a high-pH wine): Bright pale yellow. Brisk aromas of pear, peach, lemon drop and white flowers. Juicy, spicy and moderately ripe, showing a distinctly green, minty quality in the middle palate. Finishes slightly hard-edged.(ST)  (9/2017)

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris (MW): "From two adjacent and very similar plots but the grassed one took the frost more, as did Les Macherelles. Clean cut chiselled nose. Good weight, more acidity than minerality, a touch of youthful bitterness behind. Solid at the finish."(01/2018)

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
