95 points “The Droins use 50% new oak on this brilliant expression of the Chablis' most famous Grand Cru, but the wine has more than enough structure to absorb it. Made with fruit from three different parcels, it's a very complete expression of the terroir, with plenty of power and muscularity, toasty wood, leesy richness and a backbone of stony minerality.” - Tim Atkin MW, Decanter, July 2019

95 points “ Here too there is a discreet but still discernible dollop of wood surrounding the airy citrus, oyster shell and sea breeze-scented nose. The racy, intense and intensely mineral-driven flavors possess excellent delineation in the context of the vintage before concluding in a powerful yet refined, focused and strikingly long finish. This too is really quite impressive” - Allen Meadows, Burghound Issue 76, 10/19

95 points “There’s such richness from the very first impression with all manner of peaches and nectarines, as well as mangoes. Smooth, peach brulée and lemon curd. Some hazelnuts, too. The palate has a super fleshy feel, very plush, very seductive and a very long, full finish. Late, mineral stream here. Drink on release or hold. This will be best at 15+ years.” – Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com, July 2019
