2015 Tremblots Domaine Hubert Lamy
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Mineral, driven, a tighter drive than the village Saint Aubin or Chassagne, a distinct step up in terms of directed length and ageing potential - very good 'village' Puligny. Drinking range: 2020 - L&S (Nov 2016)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
(tasted from tank): Aromas of peach, spices and minerals. Juicy and tight despite being low in SO2, offering good energy and cut for village wine. Nicely structured wine with a firm spine. Just a hint of pineapple to convey the ripeness of the year. Rating: 88-90 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Sep 2017)
The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet Les Tremblots has a conservative bouquet, correct but not simple with dewy Granny Smith apples and freshly tilled soil aromas. The palate is lively on the entry with green apple and kiwi fruit, a fine line of acidity with decent weight on the finish. Nothing extraordinary here, but it is undeniably well made with satisfying energy. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 88-90 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(Dec 2016)
This is tight and quite clipped. It has plenty of vivacity, but not the aromatics. Slightly herbal maybe. Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Dec 2016)
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.
