Lamblin Bourgogne Blanc
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Lamblin’s Bourgogne Blanc has long been a “go to” for us here at Grape.
- Terrific mineral expression and depth at Mâcon-like pricing.
Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Elaboration: Meticulous sorting, fermentation and aging in steel.
Tasting Notes: Pale-yellow color. Rich fruity nose, which offers beautiful citrus-fruit aromas, evolving into rip fruits with peach dominating. This Bourgogne Chardonnay offers a good attach and is fresh and round in the mouth.
One of the more prolific houses in Burgundy, this Chablis based firm has been under family control for 300 years now and run by Didier Lamblin and his brother Michel. Home base for Lamblin is on the northern edge of the village of Maligny, which is also the northernmost tip of the region’s Kimmeridgian soils. You can think of Lamblin as a “hybrid” negociant – About 20% of Lamblin’s production comes from their own vineyard land, and the remainder from partner growers. We’ve long found tremendous value in their Bourgogne Rouge and Bourgogne Blanc bottlings, and those remain our focus from Lamblin in terms of selection.
