Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89 (2018 Jan.)

As is often the case, this is more aromatically elegant than the old vines cuvée but at the expense of less complexity to the pretty and slightly higher-toned nose of red berries, spice and a whiff of newly turned earth. The more refined if somewhat less concentrated medium-bodied flavors are shaped by relatively fine tannins that contribute to the sleek mouthfeel of the delicious and vibrant finish. While I prefer the intrinsic quality of the old vines cuvée, for those who prefer a more elegant Gevrey, this refined effort would be one to consider.
