The 2016 Puligny Montrachet Les Tremblots Haut Densite was backward on the nose despite coaxing. The palate is much more responsive with green apple and oyster shell notes, a strong marine influence at play here with a tangy saline finish that will keep you coming back for more. Good potential, but give it 2 or 3 years for the nose to open.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2032
Pale lemon-yellow. Rather forbidding scents of lemon, crushed rock and spices. Displays almost painful citric cut in the mouth, along with a wild metallic quality, a saline component and a leathery nuance. The penetrating citrus and stone finish displays terrific grip and saline persistence. Another remarkable village wine in the making. Lamy noted that these densely planted vines produced a higher yield than usual, but still only 30 hectoliters per hectare.
