Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89-92 (2019 Jan.)

This is aromatically similar but with even more floral character that is also reflected by the intense, punchy and tautly muscular medium-bodied flavors that possess both better density as well as more structure on the youthfully austere finale. This is going to require at least 5 years of cellaring to become more civilized and is built to reward a decade or more.

Vinous - Score: 90-92 (2019 Jan.)

The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru comes from four separate vineyards: Ruchots, Les Millandes, Les Sorbets and Charrières (I can confirm that Alex Seysses can remember them all, so do ask him!) It has an attractive bouquet of blackberry and wild hedgerow, a distinct marine influence emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, a touch of cola and moderate depth, but maybe just lacking the complexity of the 2015 or 2016 toward the finish. Drink over the next 10 years.
