Wine Enthusiast 93 Points | This vibrant Pinot Noir is sourced from the gently sloping northern reaches of the Beaune amphitheater. While deeply ripe, the wine has delicate raspberry and red-cherry flavors. It's a supple, silk-edged sip with soft, dusty tannins that leave chalky freshness on the finish. Approachable young, it should improve through 2030. (2019 Vintage).

 

Wine Advocate 90 Points | One of Monnot's most successful reds, the 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Les Cents Vignes bursts with aromas of ripe cherries, cassis, licorice and spices. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and richly layered with a broad, lavish attack and a fleshy core, but succulent acids to balance the ripe fruit. This will drink very well on release, though I wouldn't expect it to make old bones.

Wine & Spirits Magazine 90 Points With all of its supple black cherry and sweet plum brightness, this lasts on smoky, spicy tannins. It’s powerful, a little syrupy in its ripeness, ready to bring its fruit to roast duck.
