94-97 points Jasper Morris, MW: "100% whole bunch vinification. Pretty pink purple, no especial depth, and doesn’t need it. Another sublime bouquet coupling the floral with the purity of clean berry fruit. Leaner and tenser than the Charmes. Excellent fruit and acid balance, the whole bunch aspect remains an integral but not too overt part of the wine. Very long. (Nov 2020)"
93-95 points/'Don't miss!' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from vines near the Morey border, 50% of which were planted in 1902; 100% whole clusters). Here there is no reductive funk as there is a lovely purity to the super-fresh and quite floral nose of red currants, spice and newly turned earth. There is an almost painful intensity to the highly energetic and tautly muscular broad-shouldered flavors that already offer impressive depth and sneaky good length. Despite having reasonable size and weight, this is not an especially big Bonnes Mares though it is one allied with plenty of power and punch. Drink: 2036+. (Jan 2021)"
94 points Charles Curtis, MW (Decanter): "From a parcel of 0.7ha where the oldest vines were planted in 1901 (average age: 65 years), located just one plot before the Clos de Tart. The fruit is fermented entirely as whole clusters, with gentle pumping over to give pronounced aromas of red and black fruits, plus an edge of wild herbs. On the palate, the wine is substantial, tannic and, in the best possible sense, just slightly rustic. Drinking Window: 2024-2039. (Oct 2020)"
