96 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "You're almost always assured of a great Corton from this 2.7ha monopole, which has performed especially well in the warmer conditions of 2017, retaining acidity and freshness. Fine tannins, chalky minerality and beautifully judged oak all support savoury raspberry, red cherry and pomegranate fruit flavours. Drinking Window: 2025-2032. (Nov 2018)"

96 points James Suckling: "The super fresh, sour-cherry nose leads you into a very concentrated and focused red with a lot of mineral and graphite character. The tannins are a shade firmer than in the other Grand Crus from Faiveley, but it was always that way. Deep, dark and cool finish that goes on and on. Better from 2023. (2/12/19)"

95 points Bruce Sanderson (Wine Spectator): "This red starts out generous, with a supple texture buffering vivid acidity and firm tannins, allowing the cherry, strawberry, blood orange and spice flavors to star. Shuts down on the finish, delivering more structure than fruit. Licorice and sandalwood accents come into play. Best from 2023 through 2045. (2/26/20)"

93-95 points Jasper Morris, MW: "A beautiful, opulent purple colour starts us off well. The bouquet is sublime too, a very youthful fruit, more purple than black and certainly not red, while retaining a freshness and certainly a crisp mineral feel. It has a fine driven intensity and plenty of energy, still in a very fresh more than luxurious style. (Nov 2018)"
