89 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2018 Bourgogne Rouge La Taupe comes from 50- to 60-year-old vines and is completely de-stemmed. It offers blackberry and raspberry fruit on the nose, which is fresh and full of joie-de-vivre. The palate delivers crunchy black fruit, bilberry and hints of mulberry, touches of iodine appearing on the chunky finish. This is everything you want from a Bourgogne Rouge. Drink: 2019-2026. (Jan 2019)"
