‘The most successful 2018 reds hit heights only found in the greatest vintages…How good are the best wines? The best wines are superlative, in the class of the very best that Burgundy can produce.’
Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy, 27th December 2019
‘I was taken aback at how well many of the white wines show in 2018. I was expecting heavy wines with low acid levels, viscous textures, loads of tropical fruit and short drinking windows. On the contrary, I discovered whites with surprisingly zingy acidities that impart more tension than anticipated… far greater articulation of individual terroirs. Moving on to the reds…generally, the 2018s in barrel tend toward vivid and bright red and blue fruit aromatics. They seem to leap out of the glass with a sense of nascent joie-de-vivre. n reflection, the 2018 Burgundies exceeded my estimate…. finally, I doff my hat to the manner in which so many 2018 reds adeptly articulate their respective climats…’
Neal Martin, Vinous, 9th January 2020
‘The 2018 whites are therefore surprisingly classically balanced in profile…the best reds are rich, enveloping and sensuous but display none of the jammy, overripe and overtly liqueur-like qualities… Mention of 1947, of course, should also underline the point that for all the 2018 vintage’s challenges, its best renditions will be wines of considerable depth, dimension and sheer drama.’
William Kelley, The Wine Advocate 10th January 2020
