Situated at mid-slope on a mix of hard limestone plus clay, this vineyard ripens easily. The 2014 shows a fine, bright purple colour with a beautiful wealth of fruit thereafter on the nose. Deeply floral, mouth-filling, plump, noble and gorgeous.

Olivier Lamy returned to the family domaine in 1995 to work with his father, but the history of this St Aubin estate goes back even further, to 1640. With Olivier’s willingness to experiment, the estate has risen to a new level. Olivier Lamy went through his red vineyards three times before the 2014 harvest to remove any damaged berries, which especially posed a risk on the clay soils. Olivier notes excellent definition between the different terroirs, which he says is typical of a cooler year.
"The 2014 Santenay 1er Cru Clos des Gravières (Rouge), which includes 20% whole bunch fruit, has a pure raspberry and wild strawberry-scented bouquet with just a touch of sodden undergrowth. Further racking will see this open up. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, supple in the mouth with a touch of white pepper enlivening the composed finish."
