Visit: Chassagne-Montrachet: Lamy-Caillat

January 18, 2018

Sebastien is definitely a perfectionist! You can feel it in his wines, winery cleanliness, quality of the corks, sleek bottle wax… in everything!  But what I like the most is the style of his wines, with huge citrus, mineral, great concentration in his Caillerets… but above all the “matchstick” magic, that only the greatest winemakers have, you know who I mean 🙂

2016 Lamy-Caillat Chassagne-Montrachet
Barrel sample: Very nice nose of citrus, hint of smoke, hint of matchstick… very nice yellow citrus taste, the mineral appears after 10 seconds, very straight, very precise, nice fatness in the finish! (92 points)

2016 Lamy-Caillat Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanée
Very nice nose of citrus, hint of vanilla, lychee, exotic fruit… very nice taste of citrus, matchstick, exotic fruit, nice fatness, length of 30 sec! (93-95/100)

2016 Lamy-Caillat Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets
Nice nose of exotic citrus, yellow apple, hint of smoke… huge concentration in the mouth, enormous, lenght of 60 sec!! (95-96 points)

2013 Lamy-Caillat Chassagne-Montrachet
Nose of citrus, huge matchstick, yellow apple, hint of mineral… Delicious citrus, good fruit concentration… 20 sec finish on mineral, delicious wine!! (94 points)
