90-92 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): "The 2012 Savigny-les-Beaune Les Grands Liards comes from three plots at the foot of the slope with a higher proportion of clay towards the bottom. The nose is more opaque, denser than the Les Bourgeots with pure black currant and boysenberry scents that are very well-defined. The palate is very harmonious with supple, silky tannins on the entry that caress the mouth, dovetailing into a composed and quite succulent finish lent weight by the clayey soils. This has quality and substance, probably worth cellaring for 2 or 3 years. (Dec 2013)"

90+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2012 Grands Liards was still in tank and showing excellent potential on both the nose and palate. The bouquet is a sophisticated blend of cassis, dark berries, currant leaf, lovely minerality, incipient notes of gamebird, dark chocolate and a bit of bonfire up high. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and ripely tannic, with a plush texture to the fruit on the attack, an excellent core, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, youthful and promising finish. Fine juice, 2020-2050. (Mar/Apr 2014)"
