On the nose this is tautly mineral which follows to the intense palate of bright, scrubbing minerality. Energetic fruit does pop out, there's a nice citrus, pithy, limey middle with a good slick feel. This is fresh and focused, Good Puligny style, delivering in spades what you want. L&S (Oct 2017)

The 2016 Puligny Montrachet Les Tremblots has a detailed granite and smoke-tinged bouquet that unfurls in the glass but never gets carried away. The palate is fresh and taut on the entry, quite linear and fresh but I would like to see more substance develop on the finish that feels a little ephemeral compared to the impressive previous two vintages.

(from older vines on white marl soil; 30 hectoliters per hectare produced in 2016): Pale bright yellow. Aromas of white peach and crushed stone. Sappy, nicely delineated peach fruit is intensified by bracing underlying minerality. Not especially generous or expressive in the early going but energetic and long on the aftertaste. An outstanding village wine in the making. Rating: 88-91 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Sep 2017)

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.
