91-93(+) points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2018 Corton Grand Cru Grandes Lolières bursts from the glass with notes of cherries, blackberries, burning embers and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's full-bodied, layered and muscular, with rich, chewy tannins and lively balancing acids. Like its Aloxe-Corton sibling—from which it's separated by only four meters—this will need some more time to round out. (Feb 2020)"

90-93 points Jasper Morris MW: "This is a new farming contract taken on from a vigneron who has just retired. The holding comprises 0.31ha of 60 year old vines. Black purple with a touch of sweeter oak. Rich and firm dark fruit with a tannic core. There is good fruit intensity and it finishes juicily with the right mix of red and black notes. Tasted: November 2019."

90-93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .31 ha holding of 60+ year old vines). Very generous wood fights somewhat with the notably ripe aromas of black cherry, cassis and soft game suggestions. The rich, full-bodied and concentrated large-bodied flavors possess a suave and rounded mouthfeel that contrasts somewhat with the powerful, dusty and moderately structured finish that offers very fine depth and persistence. Again, my sense is that the wood will eventually integrate. (Jan 2020)"
