Ripe and round, still with total freshness - a dusting of stony tautness, real mineral, with depth of fruit behind. L&S (Jan 2013)

The nose is chalky flinty with crisp apple yet the start of the palate has sweet fruit giving a richer feel. Towards the back the flinty lime comes through giving a racy feel to the finish. 2013-16 Rating: 91 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk (Dec 2013)
The 2011 Puligny-Montrachet Les Tremblots is surprisingly rich, powerful and intense for a village-level Puligny. Flowers, smoke and honey all add considerable complexity and nuance. This is another wine that over delivers in a big, big way. Rating: 91 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2013)

Domaine Hubert Lamy
Olivier Lamy has built on the solid foundations his father Hubert prepared with twenty years and more of work in the vineyards. Today the Domaine has 18.5 hectares of vines - 80% are Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir. The vines are in several appellations - Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay, as well as the excellent Bourgogne Blanc. The reputation of the domaine is now made, but the Saint Aubins, both red and white, remain some of the bargains of Côte d'Or, and challenge the supposed superiority of the grander village names on a regular basis, both in terms of young and mature wines.
Olivier's wine-making style and preference is to emphasise the fresh and the mineral side of his wines, and in 2016 and 2017 there was no new wood at all, and that is with the wines in 600 litre demi-muids rather that the classic Burgundy (225 litre) fût. Certainly Oliver's whites do have an arrow-like purity and intensity, and seem to age completely straight and true.
The reds are worth more than a casual mention too. Olivier has been getting some consultation help from Sylvain Pataille, and the wines have energy and bounce along with the supple tannins and ripeness.
