Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 90-93 (2017 Apr.)

A deft application of wood sets off notably ripe dark currant, blue berry, plum and earth-suffused aromas. The equally ripe, rich and velvety flavors possess excellent size and weight before terminating in an utterly delicious, moderately firm and attractively long finish where the wood telegraphed by the nose resurfaces. I very much like the sense of underlying tension and overall, this is a wine of relative refinement. Recommended.

Vinous - Score: 91+ (2018 Jan.)

(bottled in March of 2017; 30% new oak): Medium red Deep aromas of black raspberry, black cherry and spicy oak. A step up in sweetness from the Volnay villages and Auxey-Duresses wines, offering lovely ripeness and fat to its the purple fruit, smoke and chocolate flavors. This very rich, deep wine saturates the palate and spreads out horizontally on the back end, where the big tannins are nicely supported by the wine material. A serious wine with the stuffing to age well.
