95pts Wine Enthusiast
Wine Enthusiast:  "Firmly structured, this dark wine has smoky tannins and intense acidity combined in a texture that is dusty, almost dry at the core.  Over this the ripe red fruits are spread thickly, giving powerful concentrated wine that will age well.  Drink from 2022"  Aug 2016

Allen Meadows' Burghound:  "A spicy yet reserved nose grudgingly displays notes of both red and blue pinot fruit that is trimmed in hints of violets and sandalwood.  There is good richness to the detailed, intense and vibrant middle weight flavors that possess good volume and focused power on the ever-so-slightly austere finish that is balanced and refreshing.  This too is going to need a long stay in a cool cellar but should very much be worth the wait."  Feb 2016

Vinous:  "Bright red-ruby. Lovely perfumed aromas of rose petal, minerals and espresso.  Boasts superb definition and energy in the mouth, accentuated by a high level of CO2.  Youthfully backward and very long, showing no edges.  This is always the Faiveley grand cru picked with the lowest potential alcohol, noted technical manager Jerme Flous.  Quite uncompromising in the early going."  Jun 2016

Winery:  "A limpid, beautiful dark ruby-red color.  The complex and very pleasant nose proposes an array of fruity and fiery scents.  This wine is round and fruity on the palate.  The blended and silky tannins give long-lasting aromas on the finish.

This Grand Cru has a full and balanced structure, pointing to good cellaring potential."
