Lamiable

Lamiable is based in Tours-sur-Marne (since 1650) and have 6ha of Grand Cru vines just to the north of the river on a due south-facing hillside, right at the eastern end of the Vallée de la Marne. Interestingly they contest that as their vines are a continuation of the same slope as Bouzy, they are actually on the Montagne de Reims. The recently retired Jean-Pierre Lamiable also worked as a doctor specializing in sports medicine, looking after high-level athletes preparing for the Olympics. He has now handed over the estate to his daughter Ophélie and her husband.

Tasting Notes

The wine is straw-yellow colour with light greenish highlights. Bouquet filled with aromas of fruit, light notes of toast, peanut and hazelnut nuances. The palate is rich and abundant, with a perfect balance of fine acidity and dryness, with energetic notes of pear, peach and light floral accents.

Food Matches

Fabulous aperitif

Vinification

It’s a blend of two thirds 2017 and one third reserve wine from a solera system (or perpetual reserve). Cuve aged and with malolactics completed, it was disgorged in the last quarter of 2019 with a 4.5g/l dosage. Great value for money.
