93-96 points Jasper Morris, MW: "30% whole bunch. One of the lighter colours, but still a full, attractive purple. White marl, without clay or stones. But there is a sweetness of fruit and a tension holding it in place. Perhaps just a mite less precision, less daintiness than some years. Tasted: November 2020."
92-95 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "An overtly floral and exceptionally pretty nose reflects notes of red currant, dark raspberry and plenty of spice elements, especially star anise. There is excellent intensity to the refined and beautifully well-detailed medium weight flavors that flash evident minerality on the moderately austere and compact but lengthy finish. This is at once classy and quite stylish and like many of the wines in the range, a wine that should age effortlessly. Drink: 2034+. (Jan 2021)"
92-94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Echézeaux En Orveaux Grand Cru has turned out nicely, offering up aromas of plums and berries, complemented by suggestions of orange peel, sweet soil tones, peonies and spices. Medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, it's enveloping but vibrant, with lively acids and a precise finish. (Jan 2021)"
93 points Charles Curtis, MW (Decanter): "From a 0.83ha parcel in the cool lieu-dit of En Orveaux, the grapes here are given a long, slow fermentation, gentle extraction and ageing in 60% new casks, to produce a wine that is perfumed and bright, with forward cherry fruit and a distinct floral note. On the palate, the wine is silky and very pleasant, but lacking the tension of the Gevrey grands crus. Drinking Window: 2024-2049. (Oct 2020)"
Bill Nanson (Burgundy Report): "“Starting with 2015 emphasising the name of the plot. I think we have one of the best plots, touching Prieur’s Musigny.” Here in the valley it’s like a half-pipe! A rare wine with a bit of WC here at Faiveley – about 30%. Much more high toned nose, faint wc references for sure. Wide, mouth-filling, lovely energy – growing more and more vibrant. Extra wide, almost chewy in the finish. Impressive stuff. (Dec 2020)"
