Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89-91 (2019 Jan.)

An elegant, airy and exceptionally fresh nose combines notes of cassis, black cherry, humus-inflected earth and a whiff of the sauvage. The medium weight flavors are at once tighter and more powerful if less refined, all wrapped in a youthfully austere, serious and impressively persistent finish. At least some patience will be required and this too is worthy of your interest.

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

The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes comes from 60-year old vines, 80-years in Champ Perrière (the minimum 40 years old). It has a clean, precise and very focused bouquet that gains intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, plenty of tart red fruit laced with cedar and graphite, leading to a pointed finish that feels persistent and classic in style. Excellent.
