Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89-92 (2019 Jan.)

A high-toned nose is also airy and pure with its mostly red berry fruit nose that reflects plenty of floral influence. The lilting, energetic and refined barely middle weight flavors exude a subtle minerality on the lingering and balanced finish. I like the sense of finesse but this is noticeably lighter.

Vinous - Score: 88-90 (2019 Jan.)

The 2017 Vougeot Les Petits Vougeot 1er Cru has an odd fish oil tincture on the nose, a trait I actually quite like but it comes across a little strong at the moment in barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity, fleshy and generous with quite a smooth finish where that "fishy" trait ebbs into the background. I suspect that will disappear by the time this is bottled.
