91-93 points/'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "A mentholated top note is present on the overtly floral-suffused aromas of plum, dark raspberry and discreet earth wisps. The succulent, delicious and caressing middle weight flavors that exude a refreshing salinity on the sappy, firm and well-balanced finale. This is quite attractive and should drink well after only 4 to 6 years of cellaring. Worth considering. Drink: 2029+. (Jan 2021)"

92 points William Kelley ( Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Monts Luisants is another fine success, delivering aromas of plums, cassis, bergamot, spices and violets. Medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, it's supple and succulent, with melting tannins and lively acids. Of Verdet's three premiers crus, this will drink the best young. Drink: 2022-2042. (Aug 2021)"

92 points Jasper Morris, MW (Inside Burgundy): "An even purple throughout, pleasing bouquet and a charming sweet fruit through the middle, elegance all the way, but without quite the depth of Aurélien Verdet’s other 1ers crus. Tasted: March 2021. (Mar 2022)"
