93-95pts Allen Meadows' Burghound
Allen Meadows' Burghound:  "A highly reserved, cool and super-fresh nose only reluctantly gives up the essence of red cherry, pomegranate, wet stone and soft earth aromas.  The supporting tannins are even finer than those of the Clos de Vougeot and the minerality is much more pronounced on the delineated middle weight flavors that seem to vibrate in the mouth before terminating in an austere, saline and hugely long finish.  In the same fashion as the Clos de Vougeot the tannic spine is fine but quite prominent and plenty of patience is a must."  Feb 2016

Vinous:  "Dark red.  Very pure but subdued aromas of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and minerals.  Suave and wonderfully precise on the palate, conveying lovely inner-mouth rose petal lift to the flavors of raspberry and crushed-stone minerality. Totally different in style from the Clos Vougeot and Echzeaux and a step up in precision, finesse and sophistication.  The very long, rising, saline finish perks up the taste buds.  My projected score may prove to be overly conservative."  Jun 2016

Wine Spectator:  "Offers spicy cherry, smoke, tobacco and mineral aromas and flavors.  Shows terrific intensity and balance, but needs time for all the elements to come together.  Best from 2021 through 2040."  Feb 2017

Wine Enthusiast:  "This is a beautiful, ripe and floral wine.  It does have structure although the main focus is on the rich, juicy fruit. Berries and red plums push through the rounded tannins.  It will age magnificently, with great richness."  Aug 2016

Winery:  "This wine, which has a generous and complex nose, divulges rich aromas of roasting and spices.   On the palate, it opens with ripe and silky tannins, before showing its strength and its beautiful structure."
