- (89-91) points - "Outstanding" - Burghound: "A more elegant nose offers up notes of acacia blossom, lemon rind, spice and white peach. The old vines are in evidence as there is very good weight and mid-palate concentration to the delicious and caressing yet powerful medium weight flavors that coat the palate with dry extract on the bone dry, highly complex and sneaky long finish. This is really quite good and worth your interest. Drink 2024+."- Allen Meadows, Burghound
- (89-91) points - Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Les Tremblots offers up aromas of lime zest, lemon oil, white flowers and crushed chalk, followed by a medium-bodied, chalky and tensile palate that's bright and mouthwatering, structured around considerable dry extract."- William Kelley, Wine Advocate
