Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 91-94 (2018 Jan.)

The equally pretty nose is compositionally similar to that of the Combottes but with just a bit more earth and underbrush characters. By contrast there is more volume, power and slightly better concentration as well as on the dusty, serious and mouth coating finish where the supporting tannins are slightly firmer.

Vinous - Score: 92-94 (2018 Jan.)

(a 50/50 blend of Charmes and Mazoyères): Bright, full red. Alluring scents of black raspberry, red cherry and rose petal; lovely classic Charmes but a bit redder than usual for this cuvée at this address. Sappy and energetic in the mouth, combining compelling sweetness of fruit with good grip. The very long, rising finish features a firm tannic structure. This grand cru will be sexy early on and should age well.
