Free, but please reserve your 30 minute tasting slot.

If we could waive a wand and make superstar Chassagne-Montrachet winemaker Sabastien Caillat appear at the tasting table to tell you about his wines, I would. But every time we’ve watched Sabastien be asked about coming to the US for a visit, he pretty much breaks out in a cold sweat. Being away from his vines for a week? Not possible.

So Doug will do his best to channel Sabastien’s knowledge, intensity and passion, knowing well that his wines will do most of the work! His Lamy-Caillat wines are now the hottest white Burgundies in the market, selling for hundreds, even thousands, of dollars. His Lamy-Pillot wines remain some of the most outstanding values in all of Burgundy. As you’ll see when you taste:

  • Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Rouge Clos St Jean 2021
  • Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Rouge 1er Cru Boudriotte 2021
  • Lamy Pillot Saint Aubin Les Pucelles 2021
  • Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Blanc Pot Bos 2021
  • Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru Morgeot 2021

You’ll learn about why having any 2021 Chassagne to taste is a bit of a miracle, why there’s more white than red Chassagne today (when it was the other way ‘round for centuries), and a bit about why you can buy the 2021 Pot Bos here for <$100 but would need to spend $600 to try his Lamy-Caillat Village Chassagne.  

As usual there’s no charge for our Producer Spotlight tastings held upstairs around the tasting table, but we do ask that you reserve one of the five 30 minute sessions from 5pm to 7:30pm so we can make sure everyone has plenty of time to enjoy and appreciate the wines. These are very special wines from a VERY special winemaker. You’ll want to taste and know more!
