91-94 points Jasper Morris, MW (Inside Burgundy): "Assembled and fined. Alexandre will be able to bottle this without filtering and is very happy with the fining. Clear pale lemon and lime. Beautifully fine bouquet, yet again a masterful example. The blend between the fruit and the thread of mineral acidity is just exactly right and there is no feeling of four square Chassagne. The flesh emerges a little more forcefully at the finish which is exceptionally persistent. Year in, year out, this is just about the best example of village Chassagne-Montrachet available. (Dec 2021)"

92 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "Alex Moreau’s 2020 Chassagne villages bottling is another excellent wine, showing beautiful soil inflection, zesty acids, impeccable balance and simply beautiful fruit tones. The nose delivers scents of apple, pear, chalky soil tones, a touch of beeswax, gentle notes of new oak and a beautiful floral topnote redolent of lemon blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full and crisp, with a fine core, excellent minerality and a long, zesty and impeccably balanced finish. Fine, fine juice here. 2022-2050. (Nov/Dec 2021)"

89-92 points/'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from 3 separate lieux-dits). The underlying fruit is presently masked by just enough reduction to blur the nuance. More interesting are the solidly concentrated and sappy flavors that possess even better volume before culminating in a mouth coating and unusually powerful finish that possess excellent depth and persistence for a wine at this level. Very fine quality for a villages-level Chassagne and well-worth checking out. Drink: 2026+. (Jun 2022)"

91+ points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Aromas of pear, freshly baked bread, nutmeg and citrus zest preface the 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Village, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and precise wine that's taut and chalky, with a pretty core of fruit and a long, saline finish. It's the domaine's biggest cuvée, and it shouldn't be overlooked, as it ages very well indeed. Drink: 2023-2043. (Jan 2022)"
