Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 88-91 (2017 Oct.)

Notes of matchstick, pear and a touch of citrus introduce the rich, round and delicious middle weight flavors that possess very good mid-palate volume, all wrapped in a lemon, clean and dry finale. If this balanced effort can add a bit more depth it should merit the upper end of my projected range.

Vinous - Score: 89 (2017 Nov.)

(just the third vintage made here from these very old vines, which Lafon split with the Bret Brothers and Frantz Chagnoleau, who happens to be the husband of Caroline Gon; there was bit of hail here in 2016): Bright, light yellow. Cool, sexy, rather pungent scents of lemon, lime, musky menthol, quinine and rocks; a bit like the Mâcon-Bussières Le Monsard. Juicy, concentrated, dense wine, consistent from start to finish. Very citrussy and fine-grained. Finishes a tad dry but this wine can be enjoyed early.
