Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy:
"Bottled end April. Light lemon and lime. A little touch of banana to the nose which is notably punchier than the Puligny. Then it calms down and becomes flintier. A little youthful bitterness here as the white fruit otherwise takes over. Much more Blagny than Meursault. Fine crunchy finish."

89-92 Points - Allen Meadows' BurgHound:
"This is presently sufficiently reduced to make assessing the nose impossible. More interesting are the succulent and impressively dense middle weight flavors that possess a lovely sense of underlying tension that carries over to the lingering if mildly tangy finish that isn't quite as harmonious. This may well come together once it's in bottle, but it is somewhat awkward today." (Jun 2022)
