98 points/'Best in Show,' Decanter: "It's always a treat to taste Grand Cru Burgundy, of course, and the challenge for our judges is not to be seduced by the vineyard names alone. There was no danger of that here: this young, dark Echezeaux is hugely impressive on every front, and left everyone who tasted it clamouring for more. Deep, resonant aromas of dark cherry, plum and damson draw you into the glass, while the flavours are round, vivacious and athletic, yet every bit as deep and sonorous as those paying for this appellation have the right to expect. The tannins are quietly expressed and, for the time being, subsumed beneath the wealth of fruit, but that essential support is there. It's astonishingly accessible now, but fruit of this quality will certainly ensure a sound ageing trajectory. Alcohol 13.5%. (DWWA 2020)"

93-96 points Jasper Morris, MW: "From Champs Traversin. Medium deep purple, the nose is a little bit more refined than some, and this same elegance is carried over on to the palate. There is a good balance between fruit and acidity, with the tannins, fine-grained, waiting discreetly behind. Very stylish pure elegant and fresh finish. (Nov 2019)"
