91-93 points Vinous 

Bright lemon-green. Reticent aromas of white stone fruits, fresh herbs, spring flowers and white pepper. Less unctuous than the Chassagne villages but more imploded today (these 55-year-old vines are planted on shallow soil over calcaire but are not particularly high on the hillside). Offers lovely balance and mineral energy, finishing with noteworthy rising length and brisk acidity. But this wine is less evolved and showy than the Ancegnières, which has the fat of a baby Bâtard-Montrachet. Colin noted that it was essential to control yields in 2017 in vineyards like this one that were severely frosted in 2016--and even more important in 2018. ST (7/2018)
