  • 89-91 points - "Outstanding Top Value" - Burghound: Once again there is an intense citrus character to the floral and apple-scented nose. There is more volume and richness to the medium-bodied flavors that possess an unusually refined mouth feel for a Chassagne villages, all wrapped in a generous and palate coating finale. Excellent for its level. Drink 2022+."- Allen Meadows, Burghound
