  • (89-92) points - “Outstanding Top Value" - Burghound: “Here the citrus component is much more restrained though not imperceptible on the nose of acacia blossom and green apple scents. The racy, intense and focused medium-bodied flavors possess a more refined mouthfeel, all wrapped in a clean, dry and even more complex finale. This lovely effort is sufficiently tightly wound to require up to a decade of cellaring to reach its peak, yet it should drink well after 3 to 4 years. Drink 2026+."- Allen Meadows, Burghound
  • (91-93) points - Wine Advocate: " Lamy's superb 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Tremblots delivers a striking bouquet of citrus oil, Anjou pear, wet stones and nutmeg, followed by a medium to full-bodied, layered and searingly mineral palate that's long and penetrating. It's easy to overlook this cuvée while pursuing its profound "Haut Densité" sibling, but that would be a mistake, as this is one of the finest communal Puligny-Montrachet bottlings one can find.” William Kelley, Wine Advocate
  • (90-92) points - Vinous: "The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Tremblots Vieilles Vignes contains some fruit from the "Haut Densité" vines. It took almost a year to completely ferment. The nose offers well-defined scents of crushed limestone and apple blossom, taut and quite focused. The palate is well balanced with a saline entry, fine weight in the mouth and good density toward the finish. This shows a lot of potential. Drink 2022-2032."- Neil Martin, Vinous
