90-92 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): "The 2016 Volnay Vieilles Vignes spent 12 months in oak before transferring into vat. It has a tightly controlled, slightly introspective bouquet at first, gradually opening to reveal blackberry, raspberry and light oyster shell aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, full of energy and tension with real precision toward the vivid and quite compelling finish. There is real terroir expression here, and it should age well over the next 10 to 16 years. Drink: 2021-2035. (Dec 2017)"

90 points Jasper Morris, MW: "From Ez Blanches up the hill and Les Pluchots just below the 1ers crus. Ripe glowing purple, full nose, a Volnay with plenty of stuffing, dark fruit and definite signs of power. The dark fruit continues on the palate with medium density and a balanced finish."
