Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 88-91 (2019 Jan.)

A more deeply pitched and slightly earthier nose introduces more concentrated medium weight flavors that also possess better depth on the delicious and caressing finish. There is better underlying material and this should reward up to a decade of cellaring.

Vinous - Score: 88-90 (2019 Jan.)

The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Village offers brambly red berry fruit on the nose, hints of crushed stone that percolate through with aeration. The palate is more cohesive and fleshier than the Clos du Château: tart red berry fruit, black pepper and a light sous-bois note on the finish. This should be approachable after two or three years. I find this a step ahead of the Clos du Château this year.
