Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89 (43466)

Mild reduction largely masks the fruit and I would suggest decanting this if you're going to try a bottle young. Otherwise the sleek, velvety and highly seductive medium-bodied flavors possess first-rate richness thanks to the abundant sap that buffers the moderately firm tannic spine shaping the mouth coating, balanced and lingering though compact and mildly warm finish. At least a few years of patience would be highly beneficial as this is comparatively backward for a Vosne villages.

Vinous - Score: 89-91 (43101)

Bright, dark red with ruby tones. Penetrating aromas of black fruits, flowers and spices. At once dense and juicy, showing more minerality and reserve than the Bourgogne Rouge, not to mention superior energy and ripeness. In a more reticent, saline style, this wine finishes with serious dusty tannins.
