90-92 points Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): "(the ripest of these village wines from the Côte de Nuits, picked with 12.6% potential alcohol and chaptalized to 13%): Moderately saturated ruby-red. Distinctly darker on the nose than the Gevrey-Chambertin, offering scents of blackberry, violet and spices. At once juicy and sweet in the mouth, conveying a pliant texture and considerable delicacy to its lively savory flavors of dark berries and spices. Already showing an appealing personality, this captivating, subtly long Nuits-Saint-Georges finishes with ripe, nicely enrobed tannins that reach the front teeth. A terrific village wine in the making. (Jan 2018)"  

91 points Bruce Sanderson (Wine Spectator): "[$105 list] Black cherry and black currant flavors highlight this supple, juicy red. Earth and stone notes add interest as this tightens up toward the finish. Balanced and long, ending with hints of tar and spice. Best from 2021 through 2033. 50 cases imported. (11/15/19)”
