Burghoud (91-94): "A more elegant, pure and beautifully layered nose presents a range of red berries that are nuanced by plum, floral and soft earth hints. There is outstanding volume to the dense and serious yet relatively refined flavors that possess excellent size and weight while remaining impeccably well-balanced on the lingering finish. This is a classic Bressandes that is at once built-to-age yet should drink reasonably well after only 5-ish years or so." April 2017
