94-97 points Fine Wine Review: "The Corton makes a fitting closer. The wine has finesse for Corton and is very seductive in its silky texture. Depth is excellent, there is good concentration and length to the stony dark fruits, power, and more tannin than in the foregoing wines. (4/10/20)"

96 points La Revue du Vin de France: "Ample and precise wine, with silky and crunchy tannins, the Corton is complete and slender, without the slightest heaviness or rusticity. (2021)"

92-96 points Jasper Morris, MW: "The ripest in the cellar at 13.5% but that’s fine for Corton and much less than many! Brisk bright purple, this is perfectly poised, certainly ripe fruit, a blackberry note, in with the dark red fruit, so sunny and delicious, with perfect balance and exceptional length. Easily the best I have tasted here. (Nov 2019)"

92-94 points/'Sweet spot,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "Interestingly, this is aromatically quite similar to the Aux Cras but with a broader range of spice elements. There is first-rate vibrancy to the big, intense, powerful and even more muscular flavors that possess a velvety mid-palate texture that contrasts with the chiseled, mineral-driven and beautifully well-detailed finale. Excellent. Drink: 2033+. (Jan 2020)"
