"Blueberry, boysenberry and violet flavors are backed by a firm structure in this expressive red. Balanced and poised for a nice evolution over the next two decades, with a long, tangy finish. Best from 2022 through 2040. 126 cases made, 63 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"The 2016 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Roncières has a delightful bouquet: red cherries, strawberry, a touch of black truffle and smoke, all understated at first but unfolding with each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. This is extremely pure and tensile, strangely not unlike a Morey-Saint-Denis in terms of structure, and you can feel the chalkiness coming through on the marine-tinged, saline finish. Excellent—and I suspect this will be very long lasting. There are just five barrels instead of the usual 11 due to frost." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #234

"A slightly fresher if earthier and less obvious spicy nose displays notes of essence of red currant and a discreet floral touch. There is a sleek muscularity to the much more mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that deliver excellent punch and persistence on the beautifully well-balanced and complex finale. This is quite firm and a bit youthfully austere as well but I suspect that the impeccable balance will allow it to be enjoyable young." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 69

"Very bright cherry red. Hint of cough sweets. A little hard and reduced on the end." JancisRobinson.com
