Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89-91 (2018 Jun.)

This had just been racked and was aromatically unreadable. Here too the palate impression of the middle weight flavors is energetic while once again offering a step up in refinement along with more minerality if perhaps not quite the same richness on the youthfully austere bitter-lemon inflected finish. In its current condition this is a bit awkward but the underlying material is such that I am confident that it will come together well.

Vinous - Score: 89 (2018 Sep.)

Pale, bright yellow. Distinctly more soil-driven than the basic village Meursault, with its apple and spice flavors lifted by a calcaire element. A step up in intensity and spicy concentration as well, with apple and spice flavors framed by ripe acidity and enlivened by mineral verve. With less frost here, the estate made a bit more than 30 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine comes across as more energetic than the basic village bottling.
