The Lamy family has been working in the vineyards of Burgundy since the mid-17th century, so it's only natural that a domaine would one day be created. In 1973, Hubert Lamy did just that, having worked alongside his father, Jean.
At the beginning, the domaine had 8 hectares, although that has grown to 18.5 hectares, after buying and renting other sites. As the sub-region is dominated by Chardonnay, some Pinot Noir vines were grafted over to the white grape, due to the soils being more advantageous for Chardonnay.
After completing winemaking training, Olivier Lamy, Hubert's son, joined the business, which he now runs with his wife, Karine. Around 80% of their production is dedicated to Chardonnay, which has been lauded by many wine critics.
