93 points Josh Raynolds Vinous: "[$20 list] Vivid ruby. Powerful black and blue fruit aromas show sharp clarity and complementary smoky mineral and spice flourishes. Chewy and energetic in style, offering concentrated boysenberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of dark chocolate. Conveys both depth and energy and finishes with building tannins and a repeating blue fruit note. (8/21)" 93 points James Suckling: "Dive into the Beaujolais deep end! Very earthy and balsamic, this is concentrated and powerful, but also quite tart. Long, focused and rather tannic finish, but the tannins are really good and there’s also a strong mineral component. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (5/5/21)"

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$35 list] Vines planted in 1939 on the En Rémont vineyard give great concentration as well as dark black fruits. This wine's tannins are still young, richly structured while not masking the potential fruitiness. The wine will age well. Drink from 2022. Alcohol 12.5%. (Mar 2021)"

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Pascal Aufranc farms a parcel of ancient vines at the border of the forest in Chénas, providing a wine with intriguing earthiness, its tannins powerful and gripping against the equally intense black-raspberry fruit. Itâ??s saturated, firm and substantial, a wine for steak or for the cellar. (Jun 2021)"
