94 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2016 les Vergelesses is another simply outstanding wine in the making chez Bize. The excellent bouquet is still quite properly youthful in profile, but shows off lovely purity and depth in its aromatic constellation of sweet dark berries, currants, roasted game, espresso, dark soil tones and a nice touch of bonfire. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with outstanding soil signature, fine focus and grip, ripe, seamless tannins and a very long, tangy and nascently complex finish. This is always the longest-lived of the premier crus here and the 2016 les Vergelesses is going to be a very special bottle of Savigny in the fullness of time. 2027-2070. (Nov/Dec 2017)"

94 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): "The 2016 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Vergelesses is a stunning wine in the making, unfurling in the glass with a decidedly complex bouquet of rose petals, raspberries and cassis that mingle with notes of dark chocolate, grilled squab, licorice, spices and rich soil tones. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, layered and beautifully concentrated, with superb depth and dimension, succulent acids and fine structuring tannins, concluding with a sapid finish. While quantities are small, Bize fans will not want to miss this Vergelesses. Drink: 2020-2040. (Jan 2019)"
