94 Points Allen Meadows
An absolutely gorgeous nose reflects cool and pure aromas of the essence of red berry liqueur, spice and soft floral scents. The lilting and mineral-driven middle weight flavors retain excellent delineation and a sophisticated mouthfeel while the sneaky long if decidedly firm finish possesses outstanding complexity. This powerful yet sophisticated and refined Zen-like effort is exceptionally promising.
95-97 Points Vinous
The 2018 Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes Grand Cru has a broody nose at first, featuring black rather than red fruit, wet limestone, iris flowers and crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with filigreed tannins and excellent acidity. Quite saline toward the finish. Superb aftertaste.
96-99 Points Jasper Morris
20% new wood also. Stunningly dense purple with a gorgeous hedonistic nose without losing the ethereal possibilities. A sensational direct core of intense raspberry fruit and super-ripe redcurrant with an endless finish.
