91-93 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "(partly from purchased grapes and the rest from a 60-year-old massale selection in both Charmes and Mazoyères--the same "Magnien selection" as the Lavaux Saint-Jacques; 100% destemmed; aging in 60% new oak and 40% once-used barrels): Dark red. Ripe, slightly high-toned aromas of almost liqueur-like dark fruit salad. Juicy on entry, then dense, sappy and dry, displaying lovely definition and cut. Very firm but with an element of perfume that makes it approachable now. Finishes complex and long, with supple tannins. Technical directly Jérôme Flous says that this is "the closest in style among our wines to Rousseau's." There's certainly an element of softness to it." 11/17


92-94 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "Much more subtle though by no means invisible oak sets off beautifully layered aromas of plum, spice, earth and a whiff of underbrush character. There is terrific richness and density to the velvet-textured and voluminous flavors that possess a real sense of mid-palate density thanks to the abundant level of dry extract that also buffers the moderately firm tannic spine. This is at once a relatively elegant version of the appellation yet it is also altogether serious." 01/18


91-94 Points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "A plot of one hectare just below Chambertin, including much of the north-south planting adjacent to the Route des Grands Crus. Glowing purple, fleshy and brightly oaky. Vivid energy, raspberries and cream, with a gentler finish behind." 2016
