93+ points Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): "($192 list) Bright medium red. Sexy high-pitched perfume of raspberry, rose petal, chocolate and red licorice. Sappy but youthfully imploded on the palate, but already displaying outstanding definition and lift to its berry, spice and mint flavors. This is at another level in terms of its sheer energy. The tannins are firm but fully ripe and the finish perfumes the mouth and stimulates the taste buds. Drink: 2025-2037. (Mar 2017)"

93+ points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Nuits St Georges Les St Georges 1Er Cru was fermented with 40% whole clusters and brought up in older oak. With notes of ripe black raspberries, spice, forest floor, and black cherries, it offers medium-bodied richness, a fresh, pure, elegant style, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish. It’s youthful, energetic and a touch backward, but has terrific purity as well as potential. Give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following decade. Drink: 2020-2030. (3/20/18)"

93 points and 'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a huge 2.10 ha parcel). This too is quite restrained though persistent swirling eventually reveals strikingly floral-inflected aromas that display lovely purity and freshness on the wild red berry, warm earth-scented nose. There is good richness and excellent intensity to the compact, concentrated and stony medium weight plus flavors that possess a firm core of ripe tannins on the wonderfully long, linear and powerful finish. Like the Clos de Vougeot this is indisputably built-to-age and is definitely going to need at least a decade's worth of cellaring. Drink: 2026+. (Jan 2017)"
