Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2017 Oct.)

The super-elegant if restrained nose exhibits notably cool and admirably pure aromas of white flowers, pear, apple, citrus and plenty of classic Chablis elements that are trimmed in just enough wood to mention. There is fine volume to the solidly dense and atypically powerful medium-bodied flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract as well as deliver a strikingly persistent finish that brims with minerality though once again, there is a hint of warmth. As it almost always is, this is the most refined and harmonious effort in the range and this beauty should also repay up to a decade of cellaring.

Vinous - Score: 95+ (2017 Aug.)

Pale yellow. Aromas of lemon-lime and crushed stone are lifted by topnotes of violet and lavender sea salt. Wonderfully rich, pliant wine with the thickness of the vintage perfectly leavened by citrussy lift and the rocky character of this grand cru. Simultaneously suave and powerful, fine-grained and penetrating, this seamless, bulletproof grand cru finishes with outstanding building length and an impression of chewy dry extract. Really amazing texture, concentration and early personality for a wine with a moderate 12.5% alcohol. This should go on for a long time.
