93-95 points and 'Don't miss!' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a very large 1.21 ha parcel). A highly reserved, cool and super-fresh nose only reluctantly gives up the essence of red cherry, pomegranate, wet stone and soft earth aromas. The supporting tannins are even finer than those of the Clos de Vougeot and the minerality is much more pronounced on the delineated middle weight flavors that seem to vibrate in the mouth before terminating in an austere, saline and hugely long finish. In the same fashion as the Clos de Vougeot the tannic spine is fine but quite prominent and plenty of patience is a must. Drink: 2031+. (Jan 2016)"
94 points Wine Spectator: "[$314 list] This is full of spicy cherry, smoke, tobacco and mineral aromas and flavors. Shows terrific intensity and balance, but needs time for all the elements to come together. Very sleek and energetic, presenting a long aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral elements. Best from 2021 through 2040. 40 cases imported. (4/30/17)"
92-94 points Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): "Dark red. Very pure but subdued aromas of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and minerals. Suave and wonderfully precise on the palate, conveying lovely inner-mouth rose petal lift to the flavors of raspberry and crushed-stone minerality. Totally different in style from the Clos Vougeot and Echézeaux and a step up in precision, finesse and sophistication. The very long, rising, saline finish perks up the taste buds. My projected score may prove to be overly conservative. (Jan 2016)"
