94-98 JM / 95-97 VM / 94-96 BH / 96 DE / 96 JS

Dense purple with a lighter rim. The bouquet offers ripe fruit with good intensity. Some mulberry, with gorgeous dense fruit throughout, some saline notes, spicy too. It does have the majesty of Musigny. Finishes with greater freshness, so perhaps I am undervaluing this wine. It would have shown even better with a fresher nose. Tasted: November 2019 Jasper Morris – Inside Burgundy

The 2018 Musigny Grand Cru is slightly lighter than the Bonnes-Mares tasted alongside and has a more detailed, precise bouquet of intense blackberry, mulberry, sous-bois and light charcoal aromas that gain power with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity, very sensual and seductive. The polished and lightly spiced finish is pure class. Outstanding. Neal Martin – Vinous Media

Tasting note: A highly restrained nose requires plenty of swirling to coax the super-floral and spicy aromas to reveal nuances of plum liqueur, red cherry and sandalwood. The marvelously refined middle weight flavors possess a beguiling satin-like texture yet there is no lack of punch on the wonderfully long, complex and well-balanced finish. Like the Amoureuses, this stunningly classy effort is a knockout that should also age effortlessly over the long-term. Don’t Miss – Burghound

Sensual' is the word Véronique Drouhin uses to describe this remarkable wine and there is certainly something fleshy, enticing and engaging about this polished, refined Grand Cru bottling. Made with 40% whole bunches and 30% new wood, it's bright, perfumed and very silky with lacy tannins and no sign of the heat of the vintage. Decadent stuff. Tim Atkin - Decanter.com

This is a very complex and assertive wine that is so enticingly floral, spicy and fragrant that you can smell earthy notes, as well as sweetly smoky nuances with a full compliment of ripe red cherries and blood-orange zest. The palate has a very plush, very long, deep and powerful style with rich red cherries, framed in effortlessly long, plush and seamlessly ripe tannins. So long, velvety and approachable. It also has the balance and structure to age. James Suckling
