94+ points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Offering up aromas of sweet berry fruit, peonies, warm spices, candied peel and licorice, the 2020 Moulin-à-Vent Champ de Cour stands out for its structural elegance even within this compelling range. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with ultra-refined tannins, lively acids and a saline, expansive finish, it exemplifies the inherent elegance and seamlessness that any credible renditions of this climat seem to possess. Drink: 2021-2035. (Aug 2021)"

91-93 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2020 Moulin-à-Vent Champ de Cour, which was taken from barrel, comes from 70-year-old vines. It has a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose, which is more floral than the Les Thorins, with peony and iris petals wafting from the glass. The well-balanced palate delivers vivacious red fruit, finely chiseled tannins and a precise, elegant, silky smooth finish. Quite sweet; it will probably just firm up after bottling. Excellent. Drink: 2021-2023. (Jun 2021)"

91-92 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Cask sample, not yet bottled. A lively fresh purple, almost pink purple, not quite so deep. More in the Thorins style but actually with greater depth, after 25 days vinification and 8 months maturation. Huge intensity with explosive white pepper anchored in the deep powerful raspberry fruit. There is plenty in reserve here. Tasted: May 2021. (Feb 2022)"
