94 points Wine Spectator: "Such a mouthful of lithe, supple fruit, offering delicate yet expressive notes of raspberry, stony mineral and savory spice. Long, lingering finish is framed by refined tannins. Drink now through 2024."
94+ points Wine Advocate: "Pale ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir les Dijonnais offers up a beautiful perfume of potpourri, rose petals, kirsch, raspberry preserves and mulberries with nuances of underbrush, sautéed herbs, anise and cloves. Light to medium-bodied, this wine gives a wonderful intensity of perfumed red berry and earth flavors, framed by firm, grainy tannins and lively acid, finishing with great persistence and depth."

2010 vintage notes
"High-pitched aromas of red berries, Asian spices and fresh rose, with a smoky mineral note sneaking in with air. Silky and precise on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and floral pastille flavors and hint of licorice adding depth. Distinctly elegant, with supple tannins adding shape to a long, floral-dominated finish. - JR
