2019 vintage review: 94 points
“Sourced from a plot near the southern tip of Beaune and its border with Pommard, this rich, deeply cherry-red Pinot Noir is accented by hints of spice and earth. Structured and richly concentrated, it is also lively fresh, with a finish marked by hits of stone and a delicate scent of candied violet. Wine still needs time to open up, but should approach peak by 2027 and improve well through 2035.”
- Anna Lee C. Iijima (May 2022)
