Among the Côte de Nuits' best whites, it's pithy, nuanced and well-structured, with very subtle oak handling, flavours of citrus and gunflint and a long, mouthwatering finish.

The palate is well balanced with quite a rich and generous opening, counterbalanced by a fine thread of acidity and an almost effervescent, orange sorbet finish. Very fine.- NM

Opening in the glass with a pretty bouquet of fresh green pear, peach, mandarin oil and petrol, framed by a discreet touch of nutty new oak, the wine is medium to full-bodied, racy and precise, with a delicate and elegantly tight-knit core of fruit and a long, precise finish. As readers may know, small percentages of Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc complement Chardonnay in this cuvée. - William Kelley

Wine Spectator, September 2020
Lean yet intense, driven by racy acidity. Matchstick, bread dough, lemon and graphite notes ply the sleek frame. Winds down with lime blossom and smoke accents. Best from 2021 through 2026. – BS
