92-94 Points, Neal Martin: "The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru La Richemone Vieilles Vignes "Cuvée Ultra" has a mineral-driven bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit suffused with flinty, slate-like scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, a fine line of acidity, fresh from the start but maintaining impressive elegance and poise right to the finish. This has great potential and it should age well for a couple of decades." 12/17
91-93 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "(just four barrels made; no frost here): Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Sexy aromas of dark cherry, briary forest berries, Oriental spices, hawthorn and black pepper. Penetrating, firmly built wine with lovely inner-mouth tension and a distinctly savory quality to its flavors of berries, stone and rare steak. A bit sweeter than the Beaux Monts but still quite classic and dry. My only question mark here is whether this wine has sufficient flesh to blossom in the cellar." 01/18
96 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "A mix of black cherry, sandalwood, violet and sweet spice flavors is the hallmark of this perfumed and silky red. As seamless as a young Burgundy can be, with terrific harmony and an underlying mineral note on the super long finish. Best from 2023 through 2043." 02/19
96 Points, Tim Atkin MW, 2016 Burgundy Special Report: "The modestly named Cuvée Ultra is made with fruit from a small parcel of this little known Premier Cru, planted in 1902, which is very ancient in Burgundy. It's a smoky, aromatic, lavender and incense-scented wine with the concentration and backbone you'd expect from a vineyard that yields only 18 hectolitres per hectare in a good year. Racy and well balanced with blood orange and damson fruit. 2024-32"
