92-94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières unwinds in the glass with a crisp bouquet of citrus oil, crushed chalk and nutmeg, followed by a medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive palate that's tight-knit, tensile and mineral. Even in this generally forward white Burgundy vintage, this will need and reward bottle age. (Jan 2020)"

91-94 points Jasper Morris, MW: "From the upper part, three plots. It is in tank having been racked and fined. Fuller colour in primrose style. This is a very fresh nose rather than the heavier style. Further back on the palate the weight of this terroir starts to show. A good example of Meursault Perrières. (Nov 2019)"

91-94 points Fine Wine Review: "Stony Perrières nose. More concentration, some peach, but not great depth. Some tension. Domaine wine. (4/3/20)"

93 points World of Fine Wine: "Tight, tense, all the chalk and cream in a tight knot, very fresh and fine. Great length. (Issue #67; 2020)"

93 points James Suckling: "A tight, fruity white with sliced-apple and light banana notes and some stone undertones. Medium-to full-bodied, reserved, dense and beautiful. Flavorful finish. Drink or hold. (8/25/20)"
