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."

92 Points - Wine Advocate:
"The 2020 Meursault 1er Cru Sous le Dos d'Ane unwinds in the glass with aromas of white currants, flowers, fresh mint and bread dough, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny and seamless palate with a textural attack that segues into a taut, racy mid-palate and a precise, chalky finish. From a parcel that borders Pierre Morey's Meursault Perrières, this cuvée really seems to have found its identity in the last few years". – William Kelley (Jan 2023)

90 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2020 Meursault Sous Le Dos d'Ane offers traces of orchard fruit, hints of linseed and hazelnut, nicely focused and gains intensity in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a slightly tangy entry, hints of orange rind and fresh pear and moderate depth with a tensile and slightly pithy finish." – Neal Martin (Jan 2023)

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)
