Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89-92 (2018 Jan.)

A perfumed and very pretty nose features notes of various dark berries, spice, earth and a hint of violet. The rich, naturally sweet and very round medium-bodied flavors possess both excellent mid-palate volume and outstanding depth on the well-balanced finish. As it almost always does, this boxes well above its weight for a villages level Gevrey.

Vinous - Score: 89-92 (2018 Jan.)

Bright, dark red. Very pure, fruit-driven scents and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and licorice; I visited this cellar on a fruit day on the biodynamic calendar and this wine was seriously exuberant. Offers captivating sweetness and thickness, not to mention good power and thrust, to its slightly musky dark fruit and spice flavors. A very suave village wine with supple tannins, lovely length and a light touch.
