91-93 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2018 Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux Guettes 1er Cru offers crisp brambly red berry fruit mixed with sous-bois and faint tobacco aromas on the nose. The oak here is neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and a fine bead of acidity. A little spicier than the Les Lavières, with a chalky, energetic finish. Superb. Drink: 2021-2030. (Jan 2020)"
90-92 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a large 1.5 ha holding). Here there is enough reduction present to knock down the underlying fruit, but the nose appears to be notably ripe. Otherwise the sleek, intense and tautly muscular mineral-laden flavors possess excellent vibrancy while delivering fine length on the firm, youthfully austere and even firmer built-to-age finish. This too is going to need at least some patience as it's presently very tightly wound. Drink: 2030+. (Apr 2020)"
