Wine Enthusiast - "The Devillards own 99% of this 8.5-acre Premier Cru and so feel they can describe it as a quasi-monopoly. Vines dating back to 1922 give immense concentration as well as rich black fruits. The wine is spicy with a strongly mineral texture, red-berry fruits and black cherries. It is a wine for aging, so drink from 2022." - Editor Choice
Wine Spectator - "A tense, linear version, this displays cherry and strawberry fruit and oak spice and earth notes allied to a chewy texture. Tightens up on the finish, so be patient. Best from 2019 through 2033."
