There's class here - real aristo fruit and a mouthfilling rich fulness which almost has one looking for the structure:- hedonistic Nuits! Saline touch on the finish. L&S (Nov 2013)

Bright medium red. Highly nuanced nose offers aromas of cherry, sandalwood, minerals, blood orange and flowers, plus a hint of reduction that quickly dissipated. At once silky and sappy, with tangy red fruit and licorice flavors framed and extended by underlying minerality. Sweet, generous and long on the ripely tannic finish. A lovely showing, but there's more ahead for patient collectors. Drinking range: 2019 - 2027 Rating: 92 Stephen Tanzer, (Mar 2015)

Sourced from a very old vineyard with a high percentage of millerands (seedless berries) in 2012, this is a Nuits that is situated close to the commune’s northern border with Vosne. It’s a very smart wine, all plums and black cherry fruit, sappy acidity, subtle, aromatic oak and a hint of Asian spices. 2016-27 Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, (Jan 2014)

There is a lush and distinctly spicy character to the solidly dense medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by phenolically mature tannins on the mildly austere finish that displays fine depth and very good length. Solid quality here. 2020+ Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, (Jan 2014)
