92 points Charles Curtis, MW (Decanter): "Traditionally, this is the biggest of the Marsannay wines from Clair, coming from a 2ha parcel on the slopes above the village, in heavier clay soils, planted at the beginning of 1969. Fermented with 30% whole clusters on native yeasts, with a gentle extraction, the result is a wine with pleasantly forward fruit that is slightly marked by the wood at this stage, but with time this should integrate well. Drinking Window: 2024-2039. (Oct 2020)"

90-92 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(50% whole clusters in 2019). Much like the Vaudenelles, the nose is exceptionally fresh and bright with its very floral-infused nose of mostly red berries and earth. There is terrific intensity to the relatively big-bodied and markedly firm flavors that culminate in a more structured, more complex and longer finish. This is also well-made and should reward up to a decade of cellaring. Drink: 2027+. (Jan 2021)"
