A pure and airy nose is comprised by the essence of apple and pear with background hints of acacia and citrus zest in evidence. The sleek, intense and caressing flavors possess a relatively tender mouth feel while offering excellent length along with a lovely salinity on the balanced finale. I would add that the flavors are unusually precise compared to what is typical for the vineyard. *Outstanding*
(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. (ST)
The 2016 les Tremblots chez Lamy is very good and shows a bit more backend vibrancy than the Chassagne villages this year. The bouquet is bright and stylish, delivering scents of apple, white peach, chalky soil tones and a lovely topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and bouncy on the backend, with good, but not great depth at the core, fine focus and grip and a long, classy finish. This is a very tasty villages as well, but I have to give the La Princée a slight nod in terms of complexity in this vintage. 2018-2030.
After the Chassagne villages, the Tremblots marks a change of pace, opening in the glass with a higher-toned bouquet of lemon oil, flowers, crème pâtissière and chalky soil tones. On the palate the wine boasts a taut vertical line and good concentration in a lean, minimalist register.Drinking Window 2020 - 2030. (WK)
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.
