93 points, Vinous
“Deep ruby-red color. Darker and more brooding on the nose than the Frémiers, offering aromas of blackberry, kirsch and licorice complicated by subtle suggestions of spices, flowers and minerals. A step up in concentration on the palate too, but with an element of saline minerality giving the wine a light touch. A bit more delineated than the Rugiens; in fact today this wine makes the Rugiens seem almost monolithic by comparison. Finishes with very fine-grained tannins and lovely mounting lift. For all its intensity, this wine gives a weightless impression--and really calls for food. This lovely Pommard has a long life ahead of it.”

“Full ruby-red. Very pure, penetrating aromas of cassis, blackberry and minerals are totally ripe but fresh. Conveys terrific energy and precision, with its dark fruit flavors complicated by suggestions of red soil. With its light touch and refined tannins, this very long wine has the class of a top Côte de Nuits in 2015.”
