Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 88-91 (43101)

This is much more deeply pitched and pungently earth with its array of very fresh red and dark berries that carry whiffs of earth and the sauvage. The rich, round and attractively textured medium-bodied flavors possess better depth and persistence as well as notably better underlying material. Note that this well-made effort is going to require at least a few years of patience first.

Vinous - Score: 88-90 (43101)

(this wine includes premier cru fruit from Clos Prieur and Estournelles Saint-Jacques, as well as grapes from five village parcels): Medium red. Red cherry and raspberry aromas are complicated by savory soil scents. A step up in complexity and plushness from the Clos du Château, conveying lovely sweetness and salty mineral notes to its energetic red fruit and earth flavors. This seamless, fully ripe village wine spreads out to saturate the palate on the ripely tannic, echoing finish.
