  • 91 points - Decanter: "Berthenet’s Tête de Cuvée is a blend from all but one of the domaine’s vineyards. Succulent, ripe and honeyed, the calcareous slopes have added freshness, citrus and saline notes. Unoaked, there are beguiling floral notes in this fine Montagny. Drink 2020-2022.”- Andy Howard, MW, Decanter
  • 16/20 - "Good Value" - "(12 months on fine lees.) Lemon and lime pure fruit on the nose, plus creamy apple. Almost chewy on the palate even though it is unoaked. An easy, happy but not simple wine. Delicious and GV. Drink 2020-2023."- Julia Harding, MW,
