94 points Sarah Marsh, MW (The World of Fine Wine): "Delightfully swathed in delicate aromas of star anise. This has a joyous energy. It is concentrated but light, so fresh and vibrant. More Chambolle than Nuits-St-Georges in its confident but elegant sashay across the palate and its fine-textured, crunchy tannins. 2026-35+. (2022)"
92-94 points Jasper Morris, MW (Inside Burgundy): "A really deep dense purple black. It may be dark fruit on the nose but with a clean cut sense of precision. Some slightly firm tannins because there is less sucrosity. The equilibrium is impeccable and the weight of fruit suggests a long life ahead. Fresh acidity almost goes without saying. (Nov 2021)"
93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The inherently black fruity character of the 2020 vintage suits the Clos de la Maréchale beautifully. The wine is going to be excellent, with its aromatic constellation comprised of notes of sweet dark berries, cassis, gamebird, raw cocoa, a complex base of soil tones, a touch of coffee bean and a gentle framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, deep and full, with excellent focus and balance, ripe tannins, fine depth at the core and a long, classy and promising finish. Fine juice in the making here. 2035-2080. (Nov/Dec 2021)"
93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "An exceptionally pretty, indeed even perfumed, aromas of red and dark currant, newly turned earth and subtle anise hints. The refined and intense flavors are not especially dense, but they possess that beguiling sense of underlying tension that carries over to the dusty, youthfully austere and lingering finish. Like several of these 2020s, this is understated and harmonious. Drink: 2030+. (Jan 2023)"
93 points/'Very Fine,' Steen Öhman (Winehog): "The Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale 2020 was served last, after the mighty Musigny. While a challenge in the heat of 2020, I can say with Nuiton pride that the Premeaux wine met the test this year. The nose is slightly less perfumed than the Chambolle wines, but is still delicately balanced, with tulips and white roses charmingly spring-like escaping from this impressive glass. Can it match the legendary 2010? Who cares! I am, however, sure that this will provide plenty of hedonistic pleasure, whether sober or even slightly tipsy in a moment of joie de vivre. It certainly has the energy. Drink from 2035. (1/28/22)"
92+ points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "After tasting the ethereal, medium-bodied 2021, the deep, saturated hue of the 2020 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale represents quite a contrast. Exhibiting aromas of sweet cherries, berries, plums and spices, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and supple, with sweet powdery tannins and a concentrated core of fruit. This will reward a bit of patience. Drink: 2030-2048. (Jan 2023)"
