93+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The lieu-dit of Les Courtelongs lies on the eastern flank of the Roche de Solutré, with a very stony base of limestone topsoil, so this is at the foot of the other towering hillside (along with the Roche de Vergisson) that dominates the landscape of the appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé. The 2019 Courtelongs from Domaine Saumaize is beautifully complex aromatically, wafting from the glass in a mix of apple, fresh apricot, a hint of passion fruit, acacia blossoms, a very refined base of chalky minerality and a deft touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is bright, vibrant and full-bodied, with a lovely core of ripe fruit, excellent soil undertow, excellent acids and a long, complex and superbly balanced finish. I love the backend energy of this wine in 2019! 2021-2040. (May/Jun 2021)"
90-93 points Jasper Morris, MW (Inside Burgundy): "Exposed due north, a site which stays fresh and does not dry out. Pale colour with a green tint. One of the classiest noses. Fine fresh herb infusion, very balanced, excellent acidity, white fruit, balanced, long finish with some minerals. Possibly a whisper of heat at the end. (Sep 2020)"
