Rober Parker's Wine Advocate (96-98 points):
"I tasted from a single barrel that Robert was confident would go into the 2017 Cornas Pur Noir (production of this cuvée is typically just a barrel or two). It shows an extra layer of depth relative to anything else in the cellar, with pristine aromas of crushed stones, violets and cassis as well. Full-bodied and breathtakingly powerful and intense, it's packed with silky tannins, plus hints of licorice and cracked pepper. Awesome juice."
