The World of Fine Wine - Issue 71 - 2021
2019 Burgundy by Sarah Marsh MW

- 2019 Beaune "Clos des Mouches" 93/100  : Opulent, broad, powerful and layered...I like the core of steely freshness...

-2019 Savigny-lès-Beaune "Lavières" 1er Cru 88-89/100 : Heady aromatics envelop the sweetness of the palate and combine with the frothy softness of the texture.

- 2019 Vosne-Romanée "Aux Communes" 90-91/100 : Perfumed...Such a pretty wine...It's airy and lifted but has substance and a silky smooth texture. Delightful.

- 2019 Chambertin "Clos de Bèze" Grand Cru 94/100 : ...depth, density and intensity.
