94 points William Kelley (Decanter): "Aux Vergelesses has produced a dark, briary wine, its wild fruit tones complemented by nuances of cinnamon, warm soil and cedar. On the palate it shows a nice core of tannin and acidity which will unwind beautifully in the cellar. Drinking Window: 2018-2050. (Jan 2017)"

93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The les Vergelesses is the ripest 2015 red in the cellar this year, coming in at 13.8 percent, but it beautifully synthesizes ripe fruit and classic minerality and will be a fine, fine bottle in the fullness of time. The nose wafts from the glass in a fine combination of black cherries, raw cocoa, cassis, pigeon, dark soil tones, a touch of cedar and a classic Savigny spice box in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and plush on the attack, but with superb transparency as well. The core is rock loaded with fruit, the minerality on the backend is admirable and the tannins are ripe and perfectly integrated on the long and nascently complex finish. A superb bottle. 2025-2065. (Nov/Dec 2016)"

91-93 points and 'Outstanding/Top value,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "This is the first wine to display more than a soupçon of wood though it's not enough to dominate the notably ripe yet fresh mix of liqueur-like red and dark cherry, floral and warm earth scents. This is also a bit more refined than usual though the typical muscle of a hallmark Vergelesses is present as well on the powerful and sneaky long finish. This is built-to-age and it's going to need every bit of 10 to 12 years to reach full maturity. Drink: 2025+. (Apr 2017)"
