96 points Vinous: "Highly perfumed and finely detailed on the nose, the Star of Bethlehem Flower Block displays spice- and mineral-accented red fruit and floral scents, along with a touch of musky underbrush. Pure, focused and lithe on the palate, this Pinot Noir offers vibrant strawberry, redcurrant, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors. As the wine opens up five-spice powder and blood orange nuances come forward. Strikingly graceful and lively, it shows no excess fat and finishes extremely long and silky, with resonating floral, mineral character and just a trace of fine-grained, polished tannins. If I was told that this wine came from a hot vintage I'd think that somebody was pulling my leg."
95+ points John Gilman: "The 2018 Star-Of-Bethlehem Flower Block pinot from Kelley Fox is another gorgeous example of the vintage. The wine shows lovely ripeness on both the nose and palate, without every losing that inimitable delicacy that I think of as the calling card for this cuvée. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a refined mix of cherries, wild strawberries, beetroot, a hint of raw cocoa, a refined base of soil, hints of hazelnut, gentle oak, peonies and rose petals. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, refined and elegant, with a superb core of fruit, lovely transparency and grip, suave tannins and a long, complex and light on its feet finish. Though the soil signatures are completely different, this is always the Kelley Fox bottling that strikes me as the most spiritually aligned with les Amoureuses in Chambolle-Musigny. It is a stunning young wine in 2018. 2026-2065+.
