"A discreet touch of wood sets off earthier and more deeply pitched aromas of softly spiced dark currant scents. There is good intensity to the sleek and once again relatively refined flavors that are supported by fine-grained tannins on the seductively textured, balanced and solidly persistent finale. Lovely." Burghound
"The 2015 Côte de Nuits-Villages is very good, its lovely bouquet of cassis, cherries, plums, raw cocoa and rich soil introducing a rich, ample wine structured around fine-grained, chalky tannins, with a long, penetrating finish. The core of this cuvée derives from the lieu-dit Que de Hareng in Brochon, effectively a continuation of Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles but only entitled to the Côte de Nuits-Villages classification." Robert Parker
"Good dark red. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry, smoke and animal fur, plus a slight fruit compote character from the very dry conditions of the year. Then sweeter and more refined in the mouth than the Bourgogne, offering an attractive balance of sucrosité and salinity. Finishes with good length and fine-grained tannins." Vinous
