16.5/20 points Julia Harding, MW (JancisRobinson.com): "Racked to tank early November, so he wasn’t going to show this or the Vieilles Vignes. 1.11 ha (2.74 acres) but they keep only part of the harvest. 50% whole bunch. 12 days total vatting (ie relatively short). No temperature control in his oak vats. Aged in 350 barrels. Picked in the cool. No fining or filtration.Light to mid cherry. Again that peppery freshness and almost a touch of Cabernet Franc in its herbal character but the red fruits on the palate are all Pinot. Pretty and scented and the tannins offer a firm, fine structure. Needs longer but is already in harmony. Lively and long and fine-grained. Drink between 2023-2028. (11/21/19)"
