A tight Beaune with ripe strawberries, light earth with some walnuts and vanilla pod. It’s full-bodied with round, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink after 2023. Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 92 Points; James Suckling
Softly mentholated aromas of decidedly ripe red and dark currant flash hints of mocha, spice and earth. The exceptionally rich, round and delicious seductively textured medium-bodied flavors coat the palate on the sneaky long finish where noticeable warmth gradually emerges. Drink: 2028+; Rating: 89-92 Points; Allen Meadows, Burghound
Lush and opulent, offering ripe cherry, plum and sweet spice flavors. Firm tannins, some from the oak, line the finish, so give this time to integrate. Best from 2022 through 2032; Rating: 91 Points; Wine Spectator
Deep in colour, its scented nose of strawberry pancakes, game and foresty notes, touched by a hint of toasty oak, adds up to archetypal regional identity, but cast in a modern, international mould. It’s medium-bodied, smooth, plummy, and already evolving complexity in the mouth, balanced nicely by fine tannins. Ageing: drink over the next six years; Rating: 93 Points; Ralph Kyte-Powell; The Real Review
