Press review
    • 2001 Beaune 1er Cru Blanc - Burghound.com - April 2004 - 86 points :(From Perrières and Clos du Roi). As one would reasonably expect, this is more forthcoming than the prior wine with pretty, expressive and open red fruit aromas as well as generous lighter weight of modest depth but good persistence. There is a certain appealing vibrancy here and if this can add some complexity over time, my score will appear conservative. 86/2006-9.
