Ratings & Reviews



96 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Pale yellow. Dynamic aromas of nectarine and iodiney minerality. Dense and thick but weightless, conveying great finesse of grain to its pungent stone fruit, ginger and mineral flavors. Really bulletproof texture here! Classically dry yet with a compelling suggestion of fruit sweetness. Just on the edge of reduction, this wine is most impressive today on its wonderfully palate-staining spicy, iodiney finish." - Stephen Tanzer

96 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"This has turned out beautifully in 2015, with a striking bouquet of tangerine oil, preserved lemon, peach and noble reduction, framed by new oak. An ample, intense and complete palate impression shows lovely textural refinement with a long, saline finish. A powerful but elegant rendition of this great terroir." - WK (Dec 2016)

94-96 Points - Allen Meadows Burghound:
"Moderate wood sets off a notably ripe and ever-so-mildly exotic nose that includes notes of peach and pear liqueur along with an abundance of floral and spice wisps. This is also imposingly scaled with its full-bodied and overtly powerful mouth coating flavors that deliver almost painful intensity and power on the dramatically long finish. Once again this is a big but impeccably well-balanced effort that should amply repay extended keeping. A 'wow' wine." (Jun 2017)

93-95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Montrachet Grand Cru amounts to a demi-muid and two barrels this year, which might not sound like much, but it's a damn lot more than the 170 kilograms eked from the 2016 vintage and due to be blended with five other equally bereft growers. This vintage has a very engaging nose: honeysuckle and jasmine, flint and a distant scent of pralines all veiled in a pleasant reduction (which seems to be Dominique Lafon's intention in recent vintages). Naturally, the palate is extremely well balanced and there is a fine bead of acidity. Its core of citrus fruit is complemented by brioche and praline, and dovetails into a light tropical vein towards the weighty (but not heavy) finish. Whilst it will doubtless be a long-term proposition, unlike the 2014 I can envisage this being broached with just 2-3 years in bottle." - Neal Martin (Dec 2016)
